The head of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, on Saturday accused UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths of reneging on his commitments to ease the economic crisis.
In a tweet on his Twitter page, al-Houthi said Griffiths did not abide by his promise to ease the economic crisis that has increased since his appointment, noting that the international envoy said his “priorities are to alleviate the economic crisis.”
He pointed out that the economic crisis has increased since his appointment.
Al-Houthi leader called for the return of revenues to the Yemeni central bank in Sana’a to ensure the disbursement of salaries of employees, accusing “the Saudi-American aggression and its allies to introduce cash prints to Aden to collapse the riyal.”
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
However, the allied forces of the Yemeni army and popular committees established by Ansarullah revolutionaries have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means, inflicting huge losses upon Saudi-led forces.
The Saudi-led coalition – which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait – has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of the aggression.
