Sana'a (Debriefer) - The Houthi spokesman and senior negotiator on Saturday criticized the UN special envoy to Yemen over his recent visit to Riyadh and Aden.
Martin Griffiths "occupies himself with formalities and visits of no content to cover the persistent aggression and blockade," Mohamed Abdul Salam tweeted.
The envoy "ignores the greatest humanitarian sufferings experienced by all the Yemeni people in the form blockade and closure of seaports and airports," the Houthi negotiator added.
On Thursday, Griffiths ended a brief trip to Riyadh and Aden, where he met with Yemen's President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, VP Ali Muhsin al-Ahmar, Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalek, Foreign Minister Ahmed Bin Mubarak, other ministers and Aden governor.
In Aden, the envoy visited the airport to see damages caused by what he dubbed as "disastrous assault" that left 27 people killed and 108 others injured, but also has "political consequences" risking to further deepen distrust.
