Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud also known as MBS is the Crown Prince of Saudi
McGoldrick said the Saudi plan to supply Yemen through the Saudi port of Jizan in the north and Aden in the south was too complicated, dangerous, slow and expensive, adding an estimated $30 per tonne to every shipment. "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so".
The Saudi-led military coalition fighting Yemen's Shiite rebels bombed the airport in the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, on Tuesday, Yemeni officials said, though there were conflicting reports as to the extent of the damage.
Dujarric said the United Nations refugee agency expressed alarm at the worsening humanitarian situation, noting that at a center for displaced Yemenis in Sanaa "hundreds more people are approaching the facility daily, saying they are no longer able to meet basic needs or afford medical care".
The U.S.is supporting a Saudi Arabia-led coalition in the conflict, with intelligence, aerial refueling and the sale of weapons. Saudi officials say the missile was supplied by Iran, and enforced the blockade as retaliation.
The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen announced a suspension of border crossing via air, marine and land routes following a ballistic missile fired from Yemen targeting Saudi capital Riyadh on November 6. The Saudi closure had drawn global condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia is backing supporters of ousted President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi against rebels called the Houthis, who are backed by Iran and allied with militants supporting former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
"The first step in this process will be taken within 24 hours and involves reopening all the ports in areas controlled by" Yemen's internationally recognized government, which the coalition backs, read the mission's statement.
He also said that the more the blockade tightens, the more the Houthis will develop their abilities to "respond to the assault of the enemy".
The Islamic State group meanwhile struck a fresh blow to Saudi-allied forces in the country's south, where a suicide vehicle bombing early on Tuesday targeted security forces in the port city of Aden, killing at least six people and wounding scores.
