Arab Parliament asks UN takes urgent actions to repair Safer tanker

Alsahwa Net-Speaker of the Arab Parliament, Adel Al-Asoomi asked the United Nations (UN) to take instant measures to compel Houthis permit the UN experts to access the Safer floating tanker and do the required repairing to avert a large-scale humanitarian crisis.

In his address to the UN Secretary General, Al-Asoomi demanded the international community to stop being silent towards the Houthis’ ban to the UN experts from accessing the Safer vessel in the Red Sea.

He affirmed that the Houthis’ defiance reflects their lack of care to environmental and economic repercussion in the event the tanker sank, exploded or the oil spilled from the tanker into the sea waters.

He cautioned against the bad condition of the decaying tanker that has been left with no maintenance for five years.

Over 1.1 million barrels of oil is expected to spill into the Red Sea waters if no action has been taken to aver the looming disaster.

Al-Asoomi indicated that reports by international institutions showed satellite photos confirming that the vessel started moving out o its place which suggests the world’s largest oil spill to happen.

The looming disaster will have disastrous consequences on Yemen’s environment and economy as wells the entire Red Sea region.
