Foreign Ministry: Any talk on safe zones for refugees in Yemen is unacceptable

[01/February/2017]



SANA'A, Feb. 01 (Saba) – The Foreign Ministry had said that any talk on setting up safe zones for refugees and displaced in Yemen by the aggression forces is unacceptable and cannot be dealt with in the absence of full coordination with the authorities in the capital Sana'a.

This work is unsafe and aims at violating the Yemeni national sovereignty under flimsy justifications promoted by the Saudi aggression, an official at the ministry said in a statement to Saba on Tuesday.

The Saudi aggression and its allies are who created the problem of displaced people in Yemen, whose number is more than four million displaced since the start of the aggression war on Yemen on March 26, 2015, the official added.

He indicated that the aggression's deliberate random air bombing led to killing civilians and causing a large amount of losses in property and service facilities, estimated at US $ 180 billion until the end of 2016.

The official called on the new American administration to reconsider its position towards the Saudi aggression and to stop supplying the Saudi regime with weapons, intelligence information and logistical support.

"Saudi Arabia encourages and works on the existence of terrorist groups in Yemeni territories to prevent any peaceful political settlement and portrays the situation as an internal civil war," the official said.
