KSRelief continues to provide relief to Yemenis

JEDDAH: As part of Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations (YCHO), the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) distributed clothes, blankets and rugs among 6,000 people in Yemen’s Marib governorate, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
KSRelief also distributed aid in the village of Qayfa in Ould Rabie directorate of Baidhah governorate.
On March 28, Saudi Arabia and the UAE gave $930 million to UN humanitarian efforts in Yemen.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman presented the previously pledged donation to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last week.
The Arab world’s poorest country is in the grips of a stalemated war and what the UN calls the worst humanitarian crisis, with 22 million people needing aid.
In February, KSRelief also signed six agreements worth $3 million with various organizations in Riyadh to help Yemenis displaced and injured by Houthi militias’ actions.
There are some 2 million Yemenis working in the Kingdom and they send more than $10 million to their families in Yemen.
To boost the economy of Yemen, Saudi Arabia has funded its Central Bank with $2 billion to help distressed Yemenis.

Saudi ambassador to US: Establishing peace is one of the pillars of Kingdom’s foreign policy

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said the signing of the peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea is part of the kingdom’s foreign policy in establishing peace and stability.

“The Kingdom has always been the cornerstone of peace in the region and the world, and has spared no effort in many countries, foremost among them Palestine, Lebanon, Afghanistan and many others,” the ambassador said.

“As some countries begin to cultivate sectarian divisions, the kingdom seeks to resolve their disputes,” he added.

He expressed his thanks to the UAE in their efforts in the signing of the peace deal between the two countries.

The ambassador pointed out that the security of the Red Sea, especially the Bab Al Mandab Strait and the Horn of Africa, is one of the Kingdom’s security concerns, regionally and globally.

The ambassador stressed the Kingdom’s continued efforts to preserve security in this region from external threats, including Iranian-backed militias as well as piracy.
