His Excellency Field Marshal Mahdi Al-Mashat, Chairman of the Supreme Political Council, met with Minister of Transport Amer Al-Marani.
During the meeting, they discussed the progress of work in the ministry, the level of implementation of its plans and programs for the current year, and the difficulties it faces.
The meeting touched on the destruction and siege of land and sea ports in Yemen by the US-Saudi coalition of aggression.
In the meeting, President Al-Mashat stressed the importance of redoubling efforts to improve the level of performance, considering the transport sector as one of the sectors related to the lives of citizens and the various productive and service sectors.
He pointed out that the US-Saudi aggression coalition continued to target the air, land and sea ports to increase the suffering of the Yemeni people and isolate them from the world, denouncing the silence of the United Nations and the international community towards the destruction of the transport sector.
He pointed out that the aggression’s targeting of airports and ports is a flagrant violation of international covenants and laws that criminalize targeting them because they are civilian facilities that provide services to citizens.
President Al-Mashat called on the United Nations to pressure the countries of aggression, led by America, to lift the siege and open Sanaa International Airport so that thousands of patients can travel for treatment abroad as a humanitarian entitlement.
The Minister of Transport stressed the keenness to implement the plans and programs of the ministry and its affiliated institutions to develop the level of performance and services it provides.
He pointed out that Sana’a International Airport is fully prepared to receive flights, as it is currently receiving United Nations planes, and provides them with services in accordance with internationally established standards.
