United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutiérrez said Yemen is teetering “on a precipice”, appealing to the international community to put an end to the Saudi war on the impoverished nation, more than three-and-a-half years after the regime and a number of its allies invaded the peninsular country.
“Yemen today stands on a precipice. On the humanitarian side, the situation is desperate. We must do all we can to prevent the already dire conditions from deteriorating,” said the UN chief in a press conference on Friday.
He added that the consequences of such a war would be “terrible” for the Yemeni nation.
Leading a coalition of its allies, including the United Arab Emirates and Sudan, Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in March 2015.
