Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdul-Malik al-Mekhlafi has called on the United Nations today to pressure on Houthis to arrange a mechanism of collecting revenues from their held territories and handing them over to the government so that the government can afford and pay the salaries of public employees there.
Al-Mekhlafi made the call during a meeting with the United Nations Resident Representative, the new humanitarian coordinator in Yemen on Sunday. He said that the rebel militia collect 70% of the state's revenues and use them to finance the war instead of paying the salaries of the public employees in their areas of control.
