UN: Yemen blockade will lead to mass starvation and death of millions of people

The continuation of the blockade of Yemen by the forces of the Arab coalition will lead to the most massive famine faced by the world over the past decades, and the inevitable death of millions of people living there, reports TASS Statement by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Mark Lowkok.

Loukok outlined a number of steps that are needed to improve the situation of Yemenis: "immediate resumption of UN flights to the country, humanitarian and commercial supplies to all ports of Yemen", as well as "stop interference in the activities of the world organization and its partners."

According to him, if the blockade is not lifted, and the measures listed by him are not taken, then famine will begin in Yemen.

Not like we saw in South Sudan earlier this year, where tens of thousands of people were affected, not like the famine in Somalia, as a result of which 2011 thousand people died in 250 year. It will be the most massive famine that the world has seen in many decades, with millions of victims,
Laucock told reporters after a closed meeting at the UN Security Council.

He also said that before the closure of access to Yemen, the UN World Food Program (WFP) provided assistance to 7 million people every month.

It is necessary to lift the blockade so that we can feed these people,
noted the Deputy Secretary General.

He added that representatives of the coalition led by Saudi Arabia claim that the measures they have introduced are temporary, but they do not specify when they will be canceled.

On the question of whether the coalition really lifted the blockade from the port of the temporary capital of Yemen - the city of Aden, Loukok replied:

We have no confirmation of reports that any of the ports that are necessary for humanitarian operations are resuming work.

    Americans do not care. Though there will be at least epidemics going on, even hunger, even cannibalism, ..... these star-laced, as usual, will sit across the oceans, send planes and bomb everyone who cannot answer.

      How to say ... it may turn out that the United Nations will put forward the only solution to the issue, namely, to entrust the solution of this issue to the Americans, by opening American military bases there ...

        That is what they are doing, post-shootings.

        And we should somehow help Yemen, so that CA life does not seem like sugar.

        Perhaps through Iran.

    This is a "coalition of impotent people." If the felons do not intervene, they will not do anything with Yemen.

      of course, these UN members and all their committees and about Syria are brazenly lying, why would they tell the truth about Yemen, they will splurge on the supposed deaths of millions of people, these storytellers will not yet come up with a fresh touch about the chemical weapons of Assad. .
