In its latest report on violations of children, the United Nations has ignored abuses committed by Houthi militias against Yemeni minors, Yemen’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulmalik al-Mekhlafi told a press conference on Tuesday.

During his visit to the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Action, he said that the United Nations is only seeing Yemen’s tragedy though Sanaa’s suffering.

He stressed that the internationally recognized government of Yemen has responded to all international resolutions, stressing its refusal to politicize humanitarian action and demanded to communicate the truth only.

Meanwhile, the General Supervisor of the Center, Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Rabiah, said that the Arab Coalition supports the restoration of the internationally recognized government in Yemen. In addition, an office for the protection of children and civilians has been set up.

The coalition issued a statement on Friday clarifying the circumstances of the Secretary-General's annual report on children in armed conflict, in which he stressed that the United Nations report provided misleading information by “non-independent sources.”
