Yemen needs united nations, not the United Nations

Yemen needs united nations, not the United Nations

Afrah Nasser

When I told my friends and family in Yemen that I was going to attend the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) again, they scolded me.

Three years after our long war started – and my fourth trip to a UNHRC session – there is a growing sense of resentment and distrust among Yemenis towards the UN over its inaction in dealing with the crisis in our country.

The main cause of that distrust is the sense that the UN submits to whatever Saudi Arabia and its allies want to see - or not see - in Yemen.

The UN has made the mistake of “bargaining” with
Terrorists. Bargaining with Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States of America, the three top terrorist countries in the world, has completely obliterated any respectability the UN once had.
