Saudi says UN doesn’t need to vote on Yemen humanitarian situation

5 March 2016 8:40


Saudi Arabia dismisses Security Council plans for a resolution on Yemen as a UN official says the kingdom was behind the deaths of two-thirds of civilians in war-torn country last month.

“We don’t think that a resolution is needed at this time,” Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the UN Abdallah Y. al-Mouallimi said on Friday.

Mouallimi said any UN intervention could prolong the war on Yemen, adding a potential resolution would give “a new lease on life” to the Houthis who are fighting Saudi-backed forces.
