The United Nations stands accused of assisting the blockade of the Yemeni nation, an Ansarullah spokesman said in a scathing rebuke of UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths.
UN complicit in blockade of Yemeni nation: Ansarullah spokesman
Zaifollah al-Shami, an information minister for Yemen's National Salvation Government, made the statement in an interview with Al-Masirah TV on Sunday.
"The United Nations has unmasked its ugly face by assisting the blockade of Yemen," al-Shami said.
"The special envoy appears to be trying to hide continues crimes against Yemen committed by the coalition of invading countries," he said.
The National Salvation Government and the Saudi-backed forces representing former fugitive president Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi are locked in a dispute over the revenues of the Hodeidah port in western Yemen.
Griffiths has urged the two sides to end the dispute, saying the revenues must be transferred to the Saudi-backed Central Bank of Yemen to support "civil servant salaries".
Al-Shami also said Americans are only paying lip service to peace and they seek to establish hegemony over Yemen.
"The world is familiar with what the US and UK call peace. What's going on in Palestine is a vivid example," he said.A/H
