All restrictions on essential commodities including fuel should be removed,says UN envoy

In his last visit to Yemen, the UN envoy Martin Griffiths held a press conference in Sana'a International Airport.

Griffiths affirmed that all restrictions on essential commodities including fuel should be removed despite any political or military issues.

Observers said Griffiths' statement did not bring anything new and he looked desperate as he reached a dead end especially regarding the humanitarian situation in Yemen.

They believe that Yemenis will reach peace without foreign intervention.
Earlier, Griffiths met with the leader of Yemen's Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik al-Houthi.

Al-Houthi criticized the role of the UN regarding the continued Saudi blockade on Yemen and the illegal detention of Yemeni oil ships saying the blockade is a clear violation of international law.

Yemenis say there will be no talks before lifting the siege on their country and ending the humanitarian crisis. They believe that the UN serves the interests of the US-backed Saudi-led coalition as there are no tangible results for its claimed efforts.
