UN Secretary-General: Yemen needs over $2 billion

UN Secretary General has Antonio Gutteres has affirmed that Yemen needs over $2 billion for humanitarian assistances, pointing out that Yemen's conflict will be resolved through a political settlement.

"We basically need now three things: Access, access, access," for humanitarian actors to reach all Yemenis in need, he said.

U.N. officials say the world's largest humanitarian crisis is in Yemen, where 17 million people are classified as food insecure, with 7 million of those facing critical food shortages.

Guterres and many diplomats acknowledged aid is only a stopgap measure, insisting that ultimately Yemen's suffering will only ease with a political solution that ends the war.

"On average, a child under the age of five dies of preventable causes in Yemen every 10 minutes," Guterres said at the conference opening. "This means 50 children in Yemen will die during today's conference, and all of those deaths could have been prevented."
