Supreme Council regrets USAID’s involvement in suspicious acts that contradict humanitarian actions.

The Supreme Council for the Management and Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and International Cooperation expressed its deep regret for the involvement of USAID in suspicious acts contrary to humanitarian actions, stressing that it will form a committee to investigate this.

In a statement today, the Council pointed out to the scenes contained in the press briefing of the spokesman of the Armed Forces that demonstrated the involvement of the agency involved in financing relief and humanitarian work in the supply of arms to a party to war.

He stressed that these suspicious acts are contrary to the humanitarian principles of providing relief and humanitarian work, which should not go beyond the provision of life-saving services, noting that when they go beyond that to provide direct or indirect military services, they violate not only the principles of humanitarian work but also a major crime of principles and humanity in general.

The Council said it would address USAID to give clarification on the reasons for its logo on weapons recently found by the military and popular committees on the Marib and Al-Bayda fronts, among others.

The Council also confirmed that it will set up a committee of inquiry in cooperation with the competent authorities, and based on the results, the necessary legal measures will be taken against the Agency or other organizations and agencies that violate humanitarian principles in its relief work and activities in the Republic of Yemen.
