The Foreign Minister told world leaders: "The Saudi-UAE aggression against Yemen is not the result of his moment. It has hidden objectives and agenda to carry out, using the greed of Yemeni mercenaries to implement and pass on their schemes. "
One of those objectives was "to create a foothold within Yemen's territory and islands for foreign military forces with a view to occupying many strategic sites such as Socotra Island, the Bab al-Mandeb Strait and al-Mahra province, as well as effective control of a number of land, sea and air ports, action to impose control and act as a fait accompli on the ground through the imposition of invading armed force and work to change the features of the earlier demarcated international boundaries the documents of its agreements were deposited with the United Nations in violation of those border conventions. "

He pointed out that one of the objectives and hidden agenda of the aggression states is the blind hatred of the civilized history of the Yemeni people.which spans more than 5,000 years by targeting air strikes on historical and archaeological sites such as Sana 'a Old City, Zabid City and old Marib dam and others.
As well as the systematic theft of Yemeni heritage, antiques, books and valuable historical manuscripts, destruction of nature reserves, theft of trees, birds and rare animals, control of oilfields and natural wealth mines and prevention of their use by the Yemeni people.
The Foreign Minister confirmed that the political leadership in Sana 'a was represented by the Supreme Political Council and the National Rescue Government supports all good offices to establish the present truce in order to achieve a peaceful political settlement and sustainable peace; stressing the importance of adhering to the armistice requirements by not impeding the entry of oil derivatives, domestic gas and cargo vessels into the port of Hodeida, opening new commercial civil aviation destinations to and from Sana 'a International Airport, including the absence of obstacles to foreign airlines' requests for access to Sana 'a International Airport.
