The head of negotiating board of the Yemeni National Salvation Government Mohammad Abd ul-Salam and the EU representative for Yemeni Affairs Hans Grundberg discussed on Thursday Yemen’s crisis created due to the aggression of the Saudi regime.

Iran PressMiddle East: After the meeting which was held through video-conference, Mohammad Abd ul-Salam announced on twitter that he consulted with Grundberg on Yemen’s political and economic causes and the possibility of the EU’s positive role in the cases.

Five years pass from the Saudi aggression on Yemen, during which Yemen has been under the most intensified ground and air raids as well as ground, sea, and air blockade by the Saudi-led coalition.

Besides the tragic consequences of the Saudi regime’s war on Yemen, the coronavirus outbreak has turned to the greatest challenge for Yemen, since the Saudi regime has devastated the Yemeni infrastructures.

Along with Saudi Arabia's war and aggression against Yemen, the outbreak of Corona has put the country's situation on the alert, and this has raised concerns at the United Nations and the body says displaced people need sufficient aid to survive because the virus is likely to be circulating in the war-torn country.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in order to bring the country’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crush the Ansarullah movement.

Since then, over 100,000 people have been killed and more than 3.5 million internally displaced people, returnees, refugees, and asylum seekers are now reliant on regular humanitarian aid to survive, according to the UN.

Approximately 80 percent of Yemen's population, or 24 million people, rely on aid, and 10 million are facing famine.
