Tehran (IP) - In a letter to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, President of Iran's Academy of Medical Sciences (IAP), Alireza Marandi stated that the UN must be held accountable for the crisis in Yemen.

Iran Press/Iran news: Alireza Marandi, President of Iran's Academy of Medical Sciences (IAP), in a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the humanitarian catastrophe and famine in Yemen, stated that no action had been taken to lift the blockade and help the starving people of Yemen and the UN must answer to a history regarding the Yemeni crisis.

Marandi stressed that the coalition attacks led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against the Yemeni people, with Western material and logistical support, continue amid the disgusting silence of international organizations. 

He added a simple cure to prevent the world's biggest humanitarian crisis, which is the starvation of millions of oppressed women, children, and men in Yemen. Still, no real and practical action has been taken.

President of Iran's Academy of Medical Sciences continued that Yemen is facing the biggest humanitarian crisis globally, and 80% of the 30 million people in this country are in dire need of foreign aid.

With the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries, Saudi Arabia has invaded Yemen since March 2015 and besieged this country by land, sea, and air. 

So far, the war killed more than 16,000 Yemenis, injured tens of thousands, and displaced millions of others.
