Yemen Not On UNSC Schedule, But Egypt Said To Carry Saudi Water Despite Oil Cut Off
By Matthew Russell Lee
UNITED NATIONS, December 3 — On December 1, Inner City Press asked the incoming president of the UN Security Council for December, Spain, why Yemen is not even on the calendar for the month, even in the footnotes. Click here for that.
The following day December 2 a Permanent Five member of the Security Council told Inner City Press, when it asked, that Egypt was working on a Press Statement. Now this report of two quotes about it:
“Saudi Ambassador to the U.N. Abdullah al-Mouallimi said in a phone call that the statement is expected to be issued on Friday or Saturday. He said there is a Russian objection to the statement.. Yemeni Ambassador to the U.S. Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak said, however, that Russia showed no objection to the step itself.”
So it appears Egypt is carrying Saudi Arabia’s water despite the oil cut-off. We’ll have more on this.
