Saudi, US accounting bodies sign cooperation agreement

  • The agreement aims to improve cooperation between the two parties and develop the fields of accounting and professional auditing in all state organs

The president of the Saudi General Audit Bureau (GAB) and the head of the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Friday signed a cooperation agreement in the fields of professional accounting and auditing.

The agreement aims to improve cooperation between the two parties and develop the fields of accounting and professional auditing in all state organs.

GAB President Hossam bin Abdulmohsen Al-Anqari said the agreement is an extension of existing cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the US, and expressed hope that it will benefit both parties. The agreement will bolster the GAB’s recently established training center, he added.

GAO chief Gene L. Dodaro hailed the agreement, saying it will develop the field of auditing through the employment of modern technology. He wished both parties success in their work.

Houthis targetted civilian facility in Najran with an explosives-laden drone, says Arab Coalition

  • Houthis also fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah on Monday

RIYADH: Houthi militants had tried to hit a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia's southern border province of Najran with a drone carrying explosives, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen's legitimate government said on Tuesday.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman of the Saudi-led military coalition said the target was a vital facility.
"The Houthi-backed terrorist militia of Iran continues to carry out acts of terrorism that pose a real threat to regional and international security by targeting civilian objects and civilian facilities, as well as civilian citizens and residents of all nationalities," Al-Maliki said.

The statement did not mention casualties and gave no further details.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said Houthis fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah but both were shot down by Saudi air defense forces.

The Iran-backed Houthis have fired dozens of missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, since the Arab Coalition intervened in 2015 to restore the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, which was ousted in a Houthi coup.
