China has called for urgent and urgent measures to be taken to prevent an environmental catastrophe caused by the “Safir” floating tank in Al Hudaydah Governorate, which is close to the disaster.
The issue of the floating tank with a potential danger to the environment in the Red Sea has occupied international public opinion for months, while Britain has threatened to transfer the matter to the Security Council because of the Houthis’ intransigence to allow the maintenance process, and a government welcome to transfer the matter to the Security Council.
The Chinese embassy in Yemen said, through her Twitter account, that she is concerned about the situation of a whistle reservoir, noting that the occurrence of any problem in it will harm the lives and livelihoods of Yemeni and civilian fishermen in the coast, will affect maritime navigation, and lead to severe marine pollution.
In the event of a leak or explosion, the United Nations confirmed in previous warnings, that the results will be disastrous, and Yemen will be affected primarily and will suffer for many years.
She called on the Chinese embassy to take measures to find a solution before the crisis erupted, without further details.
The Yemeni government, and countries including the United States and Britain, accuse the Houthi militia of refusing to allow an international team to maintain the reservoir, insisting on obtaining an amount of $ 70 million worth of oil on the reservoir held since 2015.
