The Supreme Economic Committee in Sana’a has on Saturday welcomed any steps, initiatives or real economic measures that would alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.

The Committee called for the rapid release of oil derivative vessels being held by Saudi-led coalition countries.

This came in a statement issued by the Committee, in which it replied to the allegations of Hafedh Mayad, Aden central bank’s governor who was appointed by the exiled former president Hadi, made during his meeting with 19 countries’ ambassadors on April 3, 2019.

The Committee refuted Mayad’s allegations in which he stated that he had sought to prevent speculation in the dollar, achieve the exchange rate stability and return the monetary cycle of banks, stressing that what he said was just political misleading and lies.

In its statement, the Committee also called on the United Nations and the international community to take their humanitarian and moral responsibilities towards the coalition’s abuses and the disastrous effects due to the absence of oil derivatives in Yemen.
