Yemeni government and Houthis agree to share “Safir” tank oil between them



The Houthi militia retreated from its refusal to allow the United Nations to maintain “safer” floating oil tank and to empty the amount of crude oil in it three days before the Security Council session devoted to this matter.

Yemeni and other sources working at the United Nations told Al-Bayan that understandings between the government and the Houthi militia mediated by the United Nations led to the latter’s announcement that experts from the United Nations would be allowed to assess the state of the floating oil tank as a prelude to unloading it from crude oil to avoid its explosion and an unprecedented environmental disaster that would destroy the marine environment.

According to what the sources said, the understandings were based on a deal between the Yemeni legitimate government and the Houthis to sell the amount of oil in the floating tank that exceeds a million barrels of crude oil and supply two-thirds of the amount for the government’s benefit, provided that a third of the amount be supplied to the bank branch under Houthi control, so that these amounts are disbursed for the benefit of workers in the health sector.
