Oil Minister: Released Ships Do not Cover Needed Demands of the Market


The Minister of Oil and Minerals, Ahmed Dares, said that the oil ships, that were released and allowed to unload in the port of Hodeidah today, do not cover the demand of the market.

He asked the United Nations and the world to intervene to prevent the continued detention of oil ships by Saudi forces.

He confirmed that the United Nations should put a clear mechanism to prevent the detention of oil ships.

The Oil Minister stated that the Ministry bears fines on a daily basis due to unnecessary delay, as some of the ships have been held more than a hundred days.

He mentioned secret illegal agreements between mercenaries and the Saudi-led forces that give the Saudis  control over Yemen’s oil resources.
