#YEMEN:Top Yemeni diplomat slams #UN #SecurityCouncil for enabling recent Saudi bombing of medicine warehouse.

The head of the #Yemeni national negotiation delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, has confirmed that he bombardment of pharmaceutical warehouses and other civilian
facilities in #Sanaa comes as a result of a recent statement by the #UN #SecurityCouncil, which is completely biased in favor of the coalition of aggression.

#YEMEN #YemenCantWait
“Unfortunately, #SaudiArabia is forging ahead with its aggression and siege instead of stopping them and calculating the cost of its foolishness,” Abdulsalam wrote in a post published on his Twitter page @abdusalamsalah

1/#UNSC (Quick🧵)
Summary: Everyone is shocked.
@antonioguterres, the US, Ireland, et al, are shocked about the obstruction of life-saving humanitarian aid during a famine.

Ethiopia, Russia, et al, are shocked that this is a matter of concern to anyone outside of Ethiopia.
2/Please let this conclude the phase of the international response to #TigrayGenocide where everyone talks about their feelings.

I'm attacking the diplomats, I know that they are only messengers. But the time to talk is over, now its time to #StopTigrayGenocide.
3/All of the positions expressed are entrenched. Russia and China are pretty wedded to their definition of sovereignty and Ethiopia gave absolutely no signal that they will allow food, fuel, and meds to Tigray.

#TigrayCantWait for these positions to change, people are dying.

Yohannes is absolutely right. #UNSC Res. 2417 (2018) very clearly applies to the current #TigrayFamine.

If all of the meetings and statements are necessary, we cannot let Tigrayans starve to death while elites get their act together.…
2/It is understandable that the UN needs time to build consensus, debate, or investigate. But they waited too long to start.

Now #TigrayCantWait, unless a humanitarian pipeline is secured. Drastic, temporary measures must be taken if diplomacy needs time to work.
3/The 5.2M+ who are impacted by the #TigrayFamine and need aid have hard deadlines for:
🗓️When they starve to death
🗓️When their children develop lifelong health issues
🗓️When they lose the milk to nurse their babies

Sustained access to food is the only way to buy time.

1. The U.S. sees a vital role for the Security Council to tackle the negative impacts of climate on peace and security.

U.S. Secretary of State Blinken said this when he addressed the U.N. Security Council on the impact of climate change on security.

Thread 🧵

2. Blinken said climate change is taken into account at every foreign policy decision because of its devastating implications and the cascading effects on virtually every aspect of our lives, like #agriculture, infrastructure, public #health, or food.…

3. Blinken said: "The consequences are falling disproportionately on vulnerable and low-income populations. And they're worsening conditions and human suffering in places already afflicted by conflict, high levels of violence, instability".

The Stockholm based think-tank @SIPRIorg said in a report released(link below) that 90 percent of air cargo companies identified in arms trafficking-related reports had been used by UN agencies, EU & NATO members as well as leading NGO to deliver aid. Know what @PowerUSAID up to
“For example, UN peacekeeping missions in Sudan have continued to use aircraft operated by (Sudan’s) Badr Airlines even after the UN Security Council recommended an aviation ban be imposed on the carrier in response to arms embargo violations,” the SIPRI report said.
The report also singled out other African carriers such as Astral Aviation, African International Airlines and the Sudanese-registered Trans Attico as being named in arms trafficking reports.

For decades, both New Delhi🇮🇳 and Washington🇺🇲 have supported the Kabul government🇦🇫 and shared a deep mistrust in the Taliban, but the recent US decision to withdraw its military presence from the region worries the world's largest democracy.

#USA Image
Which sees the American exit as an easy path for the Taliban to restore an Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan, such as the one between 1996-2001.

New Delhi fears that the security vacuum left by the departure of US troops will eventually be filled by Pakistan🇵🇰 and China🇨🇳.
Since the overthrow of the Taliban regime in 2001, no government in Kabul has had a pro-Pakistan orientation, and a possible return of the Taliban would mean a Pakistani growing presence in Afghan internal affairs. Terrorism will rise at it's peak.

1/9 Greek FM hs said INDIA, GREECE & UAE will hold a trilateral dialogue. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
1️⃣Turkey cld be looking to acquire NUCLEAR wpns(rpts Greek media).
2️⃣ Greece dominates the sea opening towards Turkey via CRETE island.👇
India & UAE might utilise it.
2/9 Crete played a significant role during US’s missions in middle east.
Island ws under Ottoman control earlier.
3️⃣Partnering with Greece comes with another benefit for UAE & INDIA—v use similar platforms like Mirage 2000 (Greece & India) & #Rafale (UAE,Grc & Ind).But
3/9 Qatar recently agreed to deploy 36 of it’s fighter jets in Turkey, which inclds Mirage 2000 & Rafale. Media reports speculate, these can be accessed by Pakistani & Turkish pilots. For obvious reasons this hasn’t gone down well with India & Greece. (pic Pak-Turk joint ex 👇)

Today in response to #UNSC #Syria vote, @hrw UN Director @loucharbon said, “Russia has successfully blackmailed the international community into only allowing a single crossing for UN cross-border aid into Syria."
.@amnesty UN head @SherineT said, "Authorizing just the single crossing at Bab al-Hawa once again for one or possibly two six-month periods is essential but minimal and remains woefully insufficient to meet the overwhelming humanitarian needs of the civilian population."
I asked a senior Administration official about those statements, and the official said, "The groups that we've been in touch with have a different impression from the ones that you just quoted. We see we see 6 month extension with virtually automatic additional 6 months--

(THREAD) Do you know the difference between 12 & 6+6? In Maths, there is no difference. In diplomacy, the difference is call a "constructive ambiguity". That's what just helped finding a compromise to keep the Bab el-Hawa cross border (XB) access for another year in NW #Syria.
(If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here is some context delivered by @jomanaqaddour & yours truly in @ForeignPolicy)…
1/ So, I've already told you what a "constructive ambiguity" is in diplomacy right? This is an ambiguous point in the nego you don't clarify on purpose to leave the issue for later. I explained how it applied to the UN Constitutional committee on Syria.

On the eve of #UNSC taking #GERD issue which should not have been in the first place since #GERD is a development project, and NOT a security issue, let’s see why we are where we are and what the mainstream media and the public may be missing.

A quick recap.
Why #Egypt, #Ethiopia, and #Sudan has not been able to get to an agreement after so many years?

Water sharing!

A certain binding release requirement that #Egypt insists IS a ZERO percent water allocation for #Ethiopia who generates 86% of Nile flow.…
“In the absence of a sharing agreement, the terms of that agreement would have to include every contingency with regards to different kinds of drought. That’s a nonstarter in a way” -Dr. Lall

#Yemen war , peace talks in #Oman according to sources.

The USA's special envoy to Yemen Timothy Linderkin threatened today , Sana'a Government negotiation team that if Sana'a forces do not stop their efforts to liberate the oil and gas rich #Mareb province
1/2 ImageImage
then #USA will get the UN security council to issue a resolution demanding that Sana'a forces stop their attack of #Mareb ..

Is this the job of the UNSC ? Issuing resolutions to satisfy the greed of the USA for oil and gas? Is the UNSC job is to satisfy the
requests of the invaders ? Has the #UNSC stooped so low to be a tool in the hands of the aggressor, the invader, the thieves to give them legitimacy for their thievery?
Wtf is China and Russia doing in the UNSC ? bearing false witness?
If such resolution gets passed then
