Aden, October 25, 2020, SPA -- Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Eryani affirmed that the international efforts are failed to persuade Iran-backed Houthi militias to allow the United Nations (UN) technical team to assess the situation of "Safer" Oil Tanker.
In a statement to SABA, he added that the Houthi militias have continued for years to achieve political and financial gains via this file without any concern to the catastrophic environmental and economic consequences and losses in a case of an explosion or sinking of the Safer oil tanker.
The Yemeni Information Minister called upon the international community and the Security Council to assume their responsibilities towards maintaining the international peace and security.
