Navigation in Yemen’s Territorial Waters Banned
Sana’a, Sunday April 12— Navigation in all of Yemen’s territorial waters has been banned and vessels were not allowed into Yemen unless inspected and approval by the Saudi-led coalition forces. The ban started yesterday after the Yemen’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs delegated the coalition forces to implement it.
In a statement, signed by the Foreign Minister Riyadh Yassin, issued on Saturday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Yemen has banned entry into the territorial waters and has authorized coalition countries to implement the decision, adding that the ban has been imposed on the country’s maritime zones.
“All commercial and military vessels cannot enter the designated zones without getting permission from the legitimate Yemeni government. The permitted ships would still be subject to inspection prior to heading to Yemeni ports,” added the statement.
