Sana'a (Debriefer) - The United Nations is responsible for any potential outflow from the floating storage and offloading (FSO) Safer off Ras Isa port in the Red Sea, member of the Houthi Supreme Political Council tweeted on Sunday.
"I'd like to know how long the UN experts' bodies are," Mohamed Ali al-Houthi added, as "they ask for 6-knot-radius to be secured around Safer as an additional impossible condition to impede the deal application."
The conditions continually set by the UN beyond agreement are "crime, failure, obstruction and indifference to environmental pollution. If the FSO Safer leaks, we hold them accountable for this spill," he said.
The Yemeni State-owned Safer is shored off Ras Isa, and has undergone no repair since 2015, when the Iranian-backed Houthi group seized the western oil port and other ports in Hodeida.
The UN warned that the supertanker could spill as four times as the crude leaked from Exon Valdese in 1989 off Alaska.
