Abdulsalam: Any Solution Should Include Paying Employees’ Salaries, Opening Airports, Ports and Roads, Releasing All Prisoners

News - Yemen: Head of the National Delegation Mohammad Abdulsalam revealed the most prominent achievements of 2022 at the local level and the negotiating aspect with the countries involved in aggression.

“One of the most prominent achievements of 2022 is the truce that led to ending the oil crisis that our people were suffering from,” Abdulsalam told Al-Masirah Saturday evening.

He pointed out that the opening of Sana'a International Airport, albeit for one destination, was a breakthrough for many patients, merchants and travelers.

Abdulsalam confirmed that the national side established during 2022 an important equation in the military confrontation, with the progress achieved on the fronts and targeting the Saudi and Emirati depth.

He indicated that the home front held firm during the past year at a better level than it was. He stressed that the Supreme Political Council has become more coherent at the level of political and sovereign stability, while the presidency of Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi has disintegrated and he has become exiled.

He pointed out that in the past year, a new equation has entered the humanitarian situation, which is the continuation of the demand for popular entitlements. The demands included the payment of salaries, the prevention of tampering with Yemen’s oil and gas and the exit of the occupying forces.

The head of the National Delegation indicated that the leadership in Sana'a plays a major role in managing the country's affairs, despite the difficult conditions that Yemen is suffering from, such as the blockade and the targeting of all institutions.

Abdulsalam considered that the past year, at the level of the internal situation, is one of the best years that have passed, indicating that there is a good state of security stability and the provision of services to people with the available capabilities of the National Salvation Government.

He revealed that the US-Saudi aggression was very disappointed with the cohesion of society and the return of the returnees from its ranks, whether soldiers, merchants, or politicians, to Sana'a. He stressed that the military parades proved that Yemen has become in an advanced position in defending itself and in the deterrence force that represents the protection of politics, economy and faith identity.

“We have always called for a humanitarian truce and neutralization of the humanitarian aspect, but the enemy did not respond to us until it received painful blows,” Abdulsalam said.

He added that what prevents the aggression from returning to targeting Yemen or taking economic measures and plundering wealth is the fear of the reaction of the Armed Forces.

He pointed out that there is a new equation and rules of engagement that were put forward in the salary issue, preventing tampering with Yemen’s oil and other important issues. He added that there was an attempt by the countries involved in aggression to extend the truce without any new additions, but this was rejected.

Abdulsalam stated that the US-Saudi Aggression wants a cease-fire without any humanitarian solutions, so that it can arrange its priorities within war and siege.

“Any truce must expand the humanitarian conditions and entitlements,”he emphasized.

Abdulsalam called for a quick end to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and that there be a solution to the humanitarian side, away from the military and political side.

“We seek a clear stage, whether it is a truce or a permanent ceasefire, and we have presented our point of view to the Omani mediator," he added. “Any solution must be based on the disbursement of employee salaries from oil and gas revenues, according to the 2014 budget.”

Abdulsalam stressed that any upcoming solution must include the opening of airports, ports and roads, in addition to the release of all prisoners and fully addressing the humanitarian issue.

“Our demands are legitimate and right, and what we are asking for are humanitarian benefits that have nothing to do with the military or political affairs,” he concluded.

A UN-brokered truce lasted for six months in the seven-year-old war waged by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies supported by US and western countries against Yemen.

The truce first came into effect on 2 April, and for an initial two months.  It was renewed for another two months in June. The truce has been renewed for an additional two months through 2 October.

The deal stipulated halting offensive military operations, including cross-border attacks, and allowing fuel-laden ships to enter Yemen's lifeline Hodeidah port and commercial flights in and out of the airport in the capital Sana'a "to predetermined destinations in the region."

However, in light of UN silence, the Saudi-led aggression was still obstructing flights to the Sana'a International Airport in Yemen’s capital and detaining fuel ships that were headed to the country. The fires of the aggression side did not subside along the fronts, on the borders and inside, including shelling, reconnaissance, development and crawl.

When the period specified for the military and humanitarian truce was nearing its end, the US-Saudi aggression seemed to be in a hurry to adopt the option of extending it for the third time to freeze the battle in Yemen and its economic repercussions away from global energy markets.

The forces of aggression are pushing for an extension, not out of concern for peace, but rather out of fear that the escalation will add more complications to the international scene in addition to the crisis imposed by the Russian-Ukrainian war.

A truce, the positive effects of which have not been felt by the citizens over the past months, despite its broad headlines. Commercial flights to Cairo are still stumbling until today, and the navy of aggression continues to pursue fuel ships without respect for agreements or any regard for international laws and norms.

The truce, however, expired amid the Saudi-led coalition’s constant violations of the agreement and its refusal to properly lift a siege that it has been enforcing against Yemen since the beginning of the war.

The Supreme Political Council required, in order to extend the truce, the commitment of the Saudi-led aggression to pay the salaries of all employees and the rest of the services, as a natural entitlement that is not subject to extortion. Before that, the complete blockade of Sana’a airport and the port of Hodeidah must be lifted as a criterion for demonstrating the seriousness and goodwill in the faltering peace process in Yemen.

Although the US-Saudi aggression seeks to extend the truce, it with UN complicity, is still evading the implementation of humanitarian and legal entitlements, foremost of which is the paying employee salaries and entering fuel ships to the port of Hodeidah, which made Sana’a refuse to extend the temporary truce.

The head of the National Delegation Mohammed Abdulsalam censured the aggressor coalition for failing to renew the truce deal and deteriorating the humanitarian crisis in the country as a result of its intransigence and disavowal of measures that alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.
