He added that Saudi Arabia was looking to work with the United Nations to ensure the ports are safely reopened.

"If we don't have the fuel to deliver our supplies to millions of starving Yemeni families, we will continue to witness more children dying of hunger", Muhrez said.

The United Nations has listed Yemen as the world's top priority humanitarian crisis, with more than 17 million people lacking food, seven million of whom are at risk of starvation.

Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said the reopening of the ports was for the "safe transfer of humanitarian actors and humanitarian and commercial shipments" into Yemen.

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 global airport, which is critical to receiving already limited aid shipments. The Saudi closure had drawn global condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

Yemenia Airlines Chief Saleh Ba Hedile said in a statement at Cairo Airport that the flights resumed following the Saudi-led coalition lifted restriction on air travel to Yemen.

A top leader of Yemen's Shiite rebels who are at war with a Saudi-led military coalition is vowing retaliation against the oil-rich kingdom over its disastrous blockade of the war-torn country. In March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries launched airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request.

Sammad said that with the blockade, the coalition "shut down all doors for peace and dialogue". The announcement has come after the coalition and their allies have faced severe criticism internationally over the closure.

We heard [from the Saudis] that Aden and Mukalla ports are now open - but this is not enough. Houthis, on the other hand, have denied the allegation.

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. For the ports in rebel-controlled or disputed territories, the Saudi mission has stated that it has asked for a team of experts from the U.N.to come and discuss the ways to ensure there is no smuggling of weapons.
