US State Department demanded from Houthis to stop offensive on oil-bearing Marib in Yemen

54

The American administration expressed concern about the next round of activity on the part of the armed formations of the Ansar Allah group in Yemen. Let us remind you that representatives of this group are often called Houthis. The so-called Saudi coalition is acting against it, which for several years has not been able to defeat the Houthis.


The US State Department demanded that the Houthis cease hostilities and stop the attack on the city of Marib. This is one of the strategically important regions of Yemen due to the fact that active oil production has been carried out in the province of Marib since the mid-1980s. Apparently, it was the Houthis' ability to gain access to Marib's oil that so worried the Biden administration.

The press service of the US Foreign Ministry says that the new offensive by the Houthis "will only increase internal problems, exacerbate the humanitarian crisis in Yemen."

US State Department:

We demand an immediate halt to the offensive against Marib and renounce destabilizing actions, including military operations for a cross-border attack on Saudi Arabia.

It is recalled that a few days earlier, the Houthis had used explosive drones to strike targets in Saudi Arabia, including Abha Airport. Then one of the planes was damaged near the airport terminal.

The Houthis have not responded to the demands of the US State Department at the moment.

    If I were in the place of the Houthis, I would suggest that the Americans buy oil from them. At a discount, but in exchange for weapons.
    And regarding the attack on the Saudis, I would answer that they are attacking exclusively homophobes. And Saudi homosexuals are not touched.
    And with what joy I would have watched Psaki's reaction!

      Both Syria and Yemen are producing a lot of oil.
      In the best years, as much as 30 lamas per year.
      There is no oil there on a national scale.
      There is for family clans

    In other words, the Houthis sent the State Department.

      US interests are everywhere. Especially where "non-democratic regimes" are. And if there is also oil there, then this, as they say, is a pleasant bonus to the struggle for the triumph of world democracy. In short, if you are not a litter of the USA, then we are coming to you.

        Well, there are other people in Holland, different morals. If the Dutch were pumping oil in the place of Arabia, they would not have been there for a long time: they would have been kicked out or executed for tolerance and poly-gender.
        And if the Arabs were in the place of the Dutch, then Ukraine would have been extreme long ago and would have had sanctions. If not for Uncle Sam!

      There will be, but a bit later))) They will take the province of Marib under their control and stop (for a while!). The Khadists and Saudis fail to stop the offensive by using all the reserves, with the active support of the Saudi aviation, and therefore the Houthis' exit to the outskirts of Marib is possible as early as the 20th of February, i.e. in a couple of days.
      Mattresses will be abid!

    Where there is oil, there is American "concern." They are so concerned about the natural resources of the entire planet that wherever you hit on the world map you will find yourself either in the Americans or in their "concern". And the Houthis don't give a damn about American "concern".

    You should know that the United States officially dropped from 16 February the movement of Yemeni rebel Houthis "Ansar Allah" from the American list of terrorist organizations.

    US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken:
    “This decision was prompted by the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen. We have heeded warnings from the UN, humanitarian groups and bipartisans in Congress that these designations could have devastating effects on Yemenis' access to basic commodities such as food and fuel. "

    Houthi leaders will remain subject to sanctions imposed over actions that threaten Yemen's security and stability. The United States is clearly aware of the malicious actions and aggression of Ansar Allah.

    “We will provide assistance to US partners in the Persian Gulf, including against threats emanating from Yemen, many of which are carried out with the support of Iran. The United States will redouble its efforts with other countries and the UN to end the war. "


    Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf Abdullah in the Houthi government:
    “Sana'a supports any American effort to end the suffering of the Yemeni people due to military aggression and to stop the useless war, lift the blockade and achieve a settlement and just peace without bias in a way that will serve Yemen and its people. and also preserve its sovereignty "


    US President Joe Biden:
    Washington is ending support for the military operations of the Arab coalition in Yemen and intends to intensify efforts for a peaceful settlement in this Arab country. At the same time, Saudi Arabia is facing missile strikes from Iran-backed forces, so the US will continue to help the kingdom defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity and its people.


    Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia:
    "We welcome the US statement on the importance of supporting diplomatic efforts to resolve the conflict in Yemen."

        Let's not primitize. The situation in the BV region is not static. Those who are willing and able to influence should conform. The USA can influence. For starters, Biden has banned the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE at the time of checking the correctness and effectiveness of the decision exclude the Houthis from the list of terrorists. Apparently, the United States wants to make sure that weapons supplied to allied countries in the BW will not be used in Yemen. Also the US Treasury temporarily allowed American individuals and legal entities and organizations to conduct financial transactions "Ansar Allah". In any case, everyone there is tired of the war, and a bad peace is better than a good war and any diplomatic decisions will be welcomed by all parties to the conflict. hi

          The conflict in Yemen has been ongoing since August 2014.
          The ongoing war has led to the emergence the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. According to the UN, over 24 million Yemenis - approximately 80% of the country's population - need humanitarian aidand the number of internally displaced persons exceeds 3 million.

          But so little oil is produced in Yemen that it is not worth the chase for it.
          Today ALL to the last drop Yemeni oil produced in a whole year can be taken away only eight supertankers... And in the USA today, only in reserve storage, there is such an amount of oil that the USA can supply the WHOLE WORLD for a whole week.
