Alwaght- UN Secretary-General’s Spokesman Stephane Dujarric Yemen’s warned Monday that Yemen's stock of rice and wheat will be completely exhausted in some 100 days if the Saudi regime maintains its inhuman blockade on the country’s sea and airports.
The UN warning was expressed in the wake of Saudi regime's November 6 decision to completely close all ports in Yemen, on which Saudi-led coalition has launched a bloody aggression since march 2015 and has killed over 13,000 yemenis.
The ports of Yemen are gateways through which the majority of the country's population receive food, medical aid and other supplies.
"The World Food Program says that there are 111 days until current stocks of rice run out and 97 days until current stocks of wheat run out," Stephane Dujarric said in a statement released on Monday. "Without the import of critical commodities through a lifting of the blockade on all ports, including Hudaydah and Saleef, the situation will further deteriorate."
Last Wednesday, UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock said that the blockade might result in the largest famine in the world in many decades, bringing millions of victims.
