The United Nations has called on the US government to lift sanctions on Yemen.

Iran PressAmerica: UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said on Tuesday evening that while millions of Yemenis are starving, the country could not tolerate any halt to trade or sanctions curbing food import.

The US Treasury Department announced on Monday night that it has issued a one-month exemption for part of Washington's sanctions against the Yemeni Ansarullah movement.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently announced that Washington would reconsider declaring the Yemeni Ansarullah movement a terrorist organization.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on January 11 that the US State Department has notified Congress of its decision to enlist Yemeni Ansarullah as a "foreign terrorist organization." 219
