Yemen's Supreme Council condemns Biden's visit to Saudi Arabia
Yemen's Supreme Political Council denounces opening Saudi airspace to the Israeli enemy while insisting on keeping it closed in the face of Yemen.
In light of Biden's visit to Saudi Arabia, the Supreme Political Council of Yemen in a statement expressed rejection of "any outcomes of the US President's visit to the region that affect the sovereignty, security, and stability of Yemen.
In the statement, the Council disapproved of any talks that suggest extending the armistice, stressing that "the armistice, which the coalition of aggression did not abide by, was a shocking and disappointing experience, and it could not be repeated."
Foreign interference in Yemen's internal affairs, according to the Council, constitutes the "major obstacle to peace in Yemen," which requires a "clear, serious determination and a practical readiness from the coalition of aggression to respect the sovereignty and independence of Yemen, in addition to completely putting the aggression to a halt, lifting the siege, and ending the occupation and any form of [external] military presence in Yemen."
Within this framework, the coalition, furthermore, should address "the repercussions of the war - and, foremost among which is the release of prisoners, reconstruction efforts, and compensation."
The statement revealed that the Political Council took "many initiatives and made many concessions in order to alleviate the suffering and encourage the coalition to engage in peace, but to no avail."
"Nonetheless, the Saudi-led coalition still clings to the blockade, preventing ships from sailing to Al-Hudaydah port, while keeping airspace to the Israeli enemy open. With no justification and in a brazen arbitrary manner, they still insist on closing Yemeni airspace and airports - a flagrant war crime for the entire international community to see, yet this community is complicit in their crimes, disregarding all humanitarian values and laws, charters, and treaties."
The statement slammed the credibility of the US and Saudi Arabia, especially regarding their talks on peace, affirming that the US does not aim to alter its behavior toward Yemen and the region, which makes Biden's visit a subject of condemnation, denunciation, and rejection from the Yemeni people and all the free peoples in the world.
Sanaa, within this context, asserts its "full right to continue the struggle and to take the measures it deems appropriate to guarantee the full and undiminished rights of the Yemeni people, rejecting all attempts to detract from them or circumvent them in any way."
Naturally, the Yemeni Supreme Council condemned "all attempts at normalization with the Israeli enemy," deeming normalization a "gross betrayal" of the nation and the Palestinian cause.
In conclusion, it called on all the free peoples of the Islamic nation for “joint cooperation and work to thwart all these disastrous plans, as well as the Zionist attempts that seek to inflict more humiliation and oppression on the peoples."
