Dai Bing, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, on Monday asked for more international assistance to prevent famine in Yemen.

Yemen, with its multiple challenges of violent conflict, an economic crisis, COVID-19, and food insecurity, is mired in a large-scale humanitarian disaster. The international community must act immediately, increase assistance to Yemen, prevent further deterioration of the humanitarian crisis and make every effort to avoid the spread of famine, the envoy said.
