Yemeni economic embargo will affect other countries: Houthi official

Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement has once again censured the economic pressure as well as naval and air blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition.

In a Twitter post on Monday, the spokesman for Ansarullah, Mohammed Abdul-Salam, accused the United states and its regional allies of blocking food and medicine deliveries.

“The forces of aggression continue to tighten their blockade by closing Sana’a airport, seizing ships, and resorting to several arbitrary measures, imagining that with economic aggression they will achieve what they failed with military aggression.”

Abdul-Salam said the embargo and other means of economic pressure being exerted by the Saudis and their Western backers will have a negative impact on the entire region as well.

In an exclusive interview with Iran Press news agency in Tehran in early May, Yemen’s Ambassador to Iran Ibrahim Mohammed al-Dailami said his country does not need international aid and can fend for itself in case the naval and air blockade is lifted.
