Asiri: Hodeida port became a military base, not to remain under Houthis control

The spokesperson of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition Ahmed Asiri had stated that the port of Hodeida, western Yemen, has become a military base and cannot remain under the control of the Houthis.

 

Earlier, the UN has rejected a request by the coalition forces to place Hodeida port under its supervision.

 

Asiri pointed out that the coalition cannot be sufficed with the inspection carried out in Djibouti, “because there are long distances were prohibited cargo can be loaded into the vessels”.

 

Regarding the Arab coalition request for the UN supervision on Hodeida port, the Saudi advisor to the Defense Minister said they would like to ask the UN how do they make sure the food and medical aides entering from Hodeida port are going to the Yemeni people.

 

Asiri added that there are no representatives from the relief parties nor from the UN in Hodeida port.

 

He also noted that the Arab Coalition has given US$ 1.7 billion for relief projects carried out by the UN in Yemen, adding that Hodeida port cannot remain under the control of the Houthis.
