3. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Rashad al-Alimi, President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC):
“We confirm our strict respect of international humanitarian law, international human rights law and our commitment to all the treaties and agreements ratified by the Republic of Yemen and to working in close alliance with neighboring countries and constructive partnership with the United Nations and international community in their efforts to build peace and achieve security stability, prosperity, and freedom for all the peoples of the world.”
4. Wide shot, General Assembly
5. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Rashad al-Alimi, President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC):
This truce has confirmed that we lack a serious partner in peace-making. It strengthened the conviction of Yemenis that it’s difficult to achieve a sustainable truce with an armed sectarian group without a strong deterrent. We affirm the firm position of the Presidential Leadership Council, that welcomes the renewal of the truce, provided that it does not come at the expense of the future of Yemenis, or that it allows for the preparation for a bloodier round of war, or compromising the sovereignty and empowering these terrorist militias that threaten not only Yemen, but the region and the world."
6. Wide shot, General Assembly
7. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Rashad al-Alimi, President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC):
“The obstacles placed by the terrorist militias shouldn’t prevent us from bearing our moral responsibilities to avoid the eminent oil spill in the Red Sea, more than a million barrels of stored oil on the Safer oil tanker for five years. This would lead to a destructive environmental disaster that is four times worse than the one we experienced in the Pacific Ocean following the oil spill from the Exxon Valdez vessel in 1989.”
8. Wide shot, General Assembly
9. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Rashad al-Alimi, President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC):
“We call on Member States to abide by the arms embargo regime and to confront the destabilizing Iranian influence in the region, and prevent it from providing, its militias with military technologies such as ballistic missiles and drones which are used in terrorist acts against civilians in our country and other countries in the region. This includes planting millions of internationally prohibited mines, and targeting international maritime routes in a flagrant violation of international law."

STORYLINE
President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC), Rashad al-Alimi, told world leaders that Yemen reaffirms its full respect for international laws, and will “work in close alliance with neighboring countries and constructive partnership with the United Nations and international community in their efforts to build peace and achieve security stability, prosperity, and freedom for all the peoples of the world.”

Delivering his speech at the high-level debate of the General Assembly today (22 Sep) in New York, Al-Alimi said the peace truce in Yemen “confirmed that we lack a serious partner in peace-making. It strengthened the conviction of Yemenis that it’s difficult to achieve a sustainable truce with an armed sectarian group without a strong deterrent."

He continued, “ we affirm the firm position of the Presidential Leadership Council, that welcomes the renewal of the truce, provided that it does not come at the expense of the future of Yemenis, or that it allows for the preparation for a bloodier round of war, or compromising the sovereignty and empowering these terrorist militias that threaten not only Yemen, but the region and the world."

“The obstacles placed by the terrorist militias shouldn’t prevent us from bearing our moral responsibilities to avoid the eminent oil spill in the Red Sea,” Al-Alimi said.

He reiterated, “this would lead to a destructive environmental disaster that is four times worse than the one we experienced in the Pacific Ocean following the oil spill from the Exxon Valdez vessel in 1989.”

The President of Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council (PLC) also called on Member States to "abide by the arms embargo regime and to confront the destabilizing Iranian influence in the region, and prevent it from providing its militias with military technologies such as ballistic missiles and drones which are used in terrorist acts against civilians in our country and other countries in the region. This includes planting millions of internationally prohibited mines, and targeting international maritime routes in a flagrant violation of international law."
