Cairo, Feb 27, 2021, SPA -- President of the Arab Parliament Adel bin Abdulrahman Al-Asoumi warned against Houthi militia intransigence to allow the UN team to maintain the oil tanker of Safir, off the Ras Isa port, in Hodeida, Yemen.
The tanker was lacking maintenance since 2015, which led to a dangerous development, in the tanker, as it is facing the jeopardy of sinking or exploding, a matter that would result in a dire environmentally, humanitarian and economic catastrophe on Yemen, the countries of the region and the international navigation.
Al-Asoumi called on the UN security council and the international community, in a statement announced today, to immediately and quickly act to rescue the situation.
