GCC backs efforts to deal with stranded tanker off Yemen coast

GCC backs efforts to deal with stranded tanker off Yemen coast

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) on Sunday threw its weight behind efforts to offload an oil tanker stranded in a Yemeni terminal for six years, which risks spilling a million barrels of crude off the war-torn nation's coast.
The GCC backs all measures taken to alleviate the misery of the Yemeni people, including dealing with the Safer in a timely manner, its General Secretary Dr. Nayef Al-Hajraf said amid talks with the UN's Resident Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen David Gressly and US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking.

With a UN-brokered truce in Yemen still intact, the GCC chief said it was imperative to address the deteriorating humanitarian conditions in the war-torn nation.
