UN Envoy: Yemen Facing Terrible Humanitarian Situation

After more than three years of war launched by the US-Saudi-UAE aggression, Yemen is suffering from what the UN calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The UN special envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, warned that "critical actions need to be taken now" to avoid a full-blown famine. Martin Griffiths told France 24 that without exaggeration, Yemen faces a terrible humanitarian situation.

'It's no surprise to say that the human situation of Yemen is the worst humanitarian situation in the world. A large part of the Yemeni people relies on the United Nations assistance and other international institutions to provide food and other goods,' he said.

The United Nations Special Representative for Yemen added, “The health and education situation and livelihood are in a horrible state without exaggeration.”

“The other issue that exists is the prospect of a famine that we are trying to prevent, and that such a process now requires vital action,” Griffith said.

Griffiths also expressed hope that the conflict could soon come to an end despite the failure of UN-brokered peace talks in Geneva earlier this month on the issue of security for Ansarullah delegations, adding that negotiations between the other parties could be carried out based on Kuwaiti peace talks, which two years ago had been discussed for about three months in detail.
