“We are in a new stage of the economic “aggression” that started from the first day of the war,” Ismail said.
He indicated that the four countries called America, Britain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE supervised and planned the economic war against Yemen, and their decision from the first day was to use economic war whenever they failed militarily and on the ground.
The Governor of the Central Bank affirmed that the Saudi coalition and its backed-government took control of one of the most important monetary policy, which is the currency printing tool, which is the most dangerous conspiracy, whose harm reaches every Yemeni citizen, according to a deliberate scheme to destroy the national currency.
He called on everyone to stand by the Central Bank in Sana’a to preserve the national currency with popular and societal awareness.
