Now, as per recent reports, Saudi Arabia has, on Monday, said that the Saudi-led coalition will begin to reopen the seaports and airports of the war-torn country.
He said many weapons have been smuggled to the Houthis through Hodeida and the small ports they control. The coalition closed all air, land and sea ports in Yemen last week in response to a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh.
Meanwhile in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, the United Nations dismissed Houthi claims that a Saudi-led air strike had destroyed the navigation station of the worldwide airport, which is critical to receiving already limited aid shipments.
The World Health Organization has estimated that more than 5,00,000 Yemenis have been infected with cholera this year.
Jamie McGoldrick of the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, who is based in Amman, said UN staff had visited the airport and spoken with authorities there.
Al-Mouallimi said the Saudi-led coalition wants tougher inspections at the port of Hodeida, which is controlled by Houthi Shiite rebels, because current United Nations -monitored inspections only check large ships, and "in the case of small and medium-size ships there is hardly any inspection that takes place in the port or anywhere else". "This will have no impact on our operations once they resume", Mr McGoldrick said.
Sammad said that with the blockade, the coalition "shut down all doors for peace and dialogue".
On Monday Saudi agreed to reopen ports in government controlled areas, but demanded extra security measures be put in place around the rebel controlled port of Hodeida.
Flights between Egyptian capital Cairo and Yemen's port city of Aden resumed after an 8-day hiatus, according to an official of Yemen's national flag carrier on Tuesday.
Aden, on the south coast of Aden, is the stronghold of the internationally recognised, Saudi-backed government of President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi. Aden port, which is controlled by the coalition, does not have the capacity to handle the volume of humanitarian cargo and would mean hazardous cross-line deliveries.
Houthi rebels in Yemen have launched fresh accusations on the Saudi-led military coalition over the bombing of Sanaa Airport which is Yemen's main global airport.
