Sana’a Govt’ Receives German Ambassador, Refuses to Recognize French Ambassador
The ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Yemen, Hubert Jaeger, visited on Thursday the Houthi- control port of Hodeida.
The governor of Hodeida, Mohammed Quhim, revealed, in a tweet on the Twitter platform, that the visit of the German ambassador aimed to see and assess the damage caused to the port as a result of the Saudi-led coalition bombing.
For his part, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sana’a government, Hisham Sharaf discussed on Wednesday with Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Yemen Hubert Jäger the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Yemen and possible ways to deal with the current situation.
In the context of addressing the political and humanitarian developments in Yemen, the Foreign Minister stressed that the Supreme Political Council and the Salvation Government supported entering into a truce to achieve steps that would address the humanitarian situation and alleviate the suffering of millions of Yemeni people.
Sharaf pointed out that commercial flights were not operated according to the armistice agreement, which confirmed the conduct of regular and programmed flights on a regular basis, facilitating the process of departure and arrival of citizens without harassment and obstruction.
He called on the friendly German government to resume its activities in the capital Sana’a, stressing Sana’a’s readiness to provide all diplomatic facilities, privileges and immunities out of trust and dependence on Berlin and the European Union to support diplomatic efforts aimed at ending the war and the comprehensive siege and the return to normal life.
In turn, Jäger affirmed that the situation in Yemen occupies a place in the work of the German foreign policy, pointing out that the peaceful political solution is the only solution through which the humanitarian situation will be addressed.
In the meantime, the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Sana’a government, Hussein Al-Ezzi, on Thursday said that there is no French ambassador to Yemen, nor a Yemeni ambassador to France.
Al-Ezzi confirmed in a tweet on “Twitter” that “Sana’a does not recognize any people who impersonate such traits.”
He pointed out that the French embassy in Sana’a is closed, stressing that it will remain so until France corrects its stances towards the Yemeni people and stops exports of its weapons that kill Yemeni children and women like the rest of the US-Saudi-led coalition countries.
