SANA'A, March 12 ( Saba) - Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf appreciated the stance of some members of the Congress of the United States in their letter to the U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, about worsening humanitarian situation in Yemen's port city of Hodeida.

In a statement obtained by Saba, Sharaf said the facts stated in the latter written by the U.S. Congress's members make it clear that the humanitarian situations in Hodeida city are deteriorating rapidly as the Saudi-led aggression coalition and its all-out siege are blocking humanitarian organizations to enter the city to provide aid.

Sharaf confirmed that the aggression coalition has ordered the humanitarian organizations to divert their aid-loaded ships from Hodeida to Aden and that makes the humanitarian missions very difficult logistically because of the unstable, insecurity situations in Aden, where trucks were forced to pass through at least one hundred checkpoints from Aden to the north of Yemen.

Also, Sharaf said that the facts included a call from the Congress which urges the warring parties to go back to the negotiating table, stressing that the eventual peaceful solution in Yemen would only be through a diplomatic, political settlement.
