Arab environment ministers demand UN to avert Safer catastrophe

Alsahwa Net-Arab ministers of environment called on Monday the United Nations (UN) to take urgent actions on averting a looming large-scale environmental catastrophe in the Red Sea in the event oil spilled from the Safer floating tanker.

The Arab officials voiced this during emergency meeting they held on the same day on the Safer tanker issue. They demanded the UN and the international community to exercise pressures on the Houthis who control the area where the tanker has been docked, to permit the UN experts access the taker, assess its condition and remove its oil load.

They demanded the UN Environment Program, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to continue supporting the action plan on mitigation potential oil spill impacts.

The plan was prepared by the Regional Organization for the Conservation of the Environment of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden (PERSGA).

They also called on finding funds to the action plan and demanded the Arab and African Red Sea countries to prepare national plans to respond on controlling effects of the tanker’s oil spill.

The chief of Arab environment ministers was assigned to address the UN on taking prompt actions to end this disaster.

The Houthis reversed their permission to the UN experts to access the tanker shortly after their agreement to the UN to check the tanker.
