Ansarullah: US pursuing own plots in Yemen under humanitarian guise

The spokesman for Yemen's Ansarullah resistance movement said the United States is pursuing its own interests and plots in the Arab country under the guise of humanitarian issues, and is by no means serious about ending the Saudi-led military aggression and siege against the Yemeni nation.

Mohammed Abdul-Salam told Arabic-language Al-Masirah television network that the removal of the brutal siege against Yemen must not be politicized.

“The United States is not serious about stopping the aggression against Yemen and lifting the siege. It rather seeks to advance its own plots in Yemen, and the sufferings of the Yemeni nation are not a cause of concern for it,” he said, Press TV reported on Friday.

“We emphasize that import of foodstuff and medicine into Yemen is the natural right of the country. We do not want to receive aid from anyone. What we just want is the removal of the siege,” the Yemeni official added.

Abdul-Salam censured the United Nations’ decision to add the Ansarullah movement to its blacklist of groups for violating children's rights.

“The UN is acting in favor of major powers, and exhibits clear bias. The aggressor countries are committing the most heinous crimes against Yemeni children, and yet they were not included in the list,” the Ansarullah spokesman commented.

Abdul-Salam added that when Ansarullah reacted angrily to the removal of the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen from a list of groups violating children's rights, former UN chief Ban Ki-moon said Saudi Arabia was exerting “unacceptable” undue pressure and had threatened to cut some UN funding.

“The UN decisions fall within the framework of improper political criteria and accusations,” he said.

Separately, Abdul-Salam tweeted that Yemen is resisting the Saudi-led aggression and blockade, emphasizing that aggressors must take the first step in order for the hostilities to end.

The spokesman said Yemen's National Salvation Government has taken up a defensive position against the Saudi-led aggression, and the cessation of attacks against Yemen lies in the hands of those who are attacking the impoverished nation.

“Our stance vis-à-vis the ongoing aggression against our country is defensive in nature. The party which can stop the military campaign and the siege, is the one that attacked Yemen and put the country under economic blockade,” Abdul-Salam said.

“It equates to the call to surrender if someone, who is defending himself, is asked to abandon resistance and to remain silent in the face of the siege. This is rejected by the common sense. The Yemeni nation has put up spirited resistance and made great sacrifices,” he said.
