West unlikely to pursue launch of an unbiased investigation into the war crimes in Yemen, believes Chairman of Russian Federation Council’s Foreign Affairs Committee Konstantin Kosachev.

 

“If the Americans and their European allies have conscience, there will follow a storm of condemnation towards Saudi Arabia, with threats of sanctions and demands to immediately look into the war crimes of that country that has been bombing Yemen for a year and a half,” Kosachev said, TASS reported.

 

“However, something tells me it will never happen.”

 

The lawmaker claims that if so, Riyadh would implement its threat to sell out US assets worth $750 billion.

 

The latest reports have said that the death toll is 213 in the air strike of the Saudi-led coalition on a funeral procession in the center of Yemeni capital, Sanaa. At least 534 more people were wounded in the strike.
