UNSC discusses possible oil spill risks in the Red Sea

Alsahwa Net- The UN Security Council (UNSC) holds on Wednesday a special session to investigate risks of imminent oil spill in the Red Sea and its environmental and humanitarian consequences.

Earlier, the government addressed the council to hold urgent session and take firm resolutions to avert an environmental disaster.

The Houthis who control the site where the safer tanker has been docked, have frequently banned the UN inspectors to access the tanker to do the repair service and prevent its rupture.

Minister of Information, Muamar Al-Eryani, demanded the UNSC strict resolution towards the Iran-backed Houthis who obstruct resolving the issue.

Al-Eryani said that the Houthis’ declaration on their permission to allow inspection of the tanker forms a new political procrastination that comes ahead of the UNSC’s session.

He added that the Houthis’ declared permission for the inspection does not include removal of the 1.4 million barrels of oil.

He affirmed that the Houthis use the tanker as a political ace to extort the government with no care to disastrous consequences on Yemen and the region.

“Oil spill will lead to environmental, economic, and humanitarian catastrophe and extinction of rare marine species,” Al-Eryani said.

He added that the oil spill can lead to the extinction of the Red Sea coral reefs that have become the only hope for future restoration of the species with their possible extinction in other seas as a result of the climate change.
