Yemeni gov't denies Houthi claims on detaining oil tankers

2022-04-19 | Since 2 Month

Aden (Debriefer) The Yemeni government has issued entry clearances for seven oil tankers to the Houthi-held Hodeida port in the first two weeks after the UN announced the humanitarian truce, Yemen's foreign minister said on Monday, denying Houthi claims.
The Houthi group "collects and loots fees imposed on these vessels, in blatant violation of the Stockholm Agreement," under which the fees should be put into a banking account allocated to civil servant payment, FM Ahmed Bin Mubarak added in press remarks.
In the last few days, the Houthi group repeatedly accused the Yemeni government and Arab coalition of breaking the UN truce by denying oil tankers access to Hodeida port.
The truce provides for 2-month ceasefire, clearances for 18 oil tankers to enter Hodeida port, and conditional reopening of the Sana'a airport.
