Ambassador Abdallah Al-Mouallimi reiterated at a news conference at United Nations headquarters in NY on Monday that closed seaports and airports will start reopening within the 24 hours promised late Sunday.
Yemen used to import about 70 percent of its daily needs before the blockade, but since the start of the siege, food and medicine are in short supply, with cooking gas prices having surged by around 100 percent and fuel unavailable at most gas stations. The top Iranian diplomat said, "Blocking of humanitarian access to an already famine-stricken Yemen and the decision to "close all Yemeni air, sea and land ports" have further deteriorated the humanitarian nightmare in Yemen".
The top United Nations aid official in Yemen called on the Saudi-led coalition on Tuesday to open all Yemen's sea ports urgently, saying it risked damaging the fight against cholera and hunger, with 7 million already in "famine-like conditions". "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so".
Zarif's plan calls for "a ceasefire and an immediate end to all military operations, unimpeded urgent humanitarian and medical assistance to the people of Yemen, resumption of Yemeni-led and Yemeni-owned national dialogue, with the participation of the representatives of all political parties and social groups, and establishment of an inclusive national unity government".
He also said that the more the blockade tightens, the more the Houthis will develop their abilities to "respond to the assault of the enemy". The Saudi closure had drawn worldwide condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
