Saudi Arabia's aid agency plan to distribute 10,500 food baskets in Marib launched

  • KSRelief organized an entertainment trip for 26 Yemeni children formerly recruited by the Houthi militias

JEDDAH: King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) launched on Monday a project to distribute 10,500 food baskets in Marib, Yemen. The launch comes within the projects being implemented by the center in the impoverished country.
Earlier this week, KSRelief signed an executive program for the treatment of wounded Yemenis in different parts of the country, in cooperation with Ben Zaila Hospital.
Abdullah Al-Wadai, deputy director of the department of medical and environmental assistance, said this program is extended to the previous contracts signed with five hospitals in Yemen.
He said the move aims to provide medical care to 200 wounded Yemenis through latest medical procedures.
He added that the number of wounded Yemenis previously treated in private sector hospitals in Yemen had reached 56,197.
This move is part of the programs funded and monitored by KSRelief in coordination with Yemen’s Health Ministry to provide better health services to Yemenis. Recently, the center organized an entertainment trip for 26 Yemeni children formerly recruited by the Houthi militias.

Saudi Arabia welcomes US decision on Iran oil sanction waivers

  • The Saudi minister said Iran uses state income to finance their dangerous policies
  • Saudi Arabia will work with other oil producing countries to stabilize international market

DUBAI: Saudi Arabia has welcomed US Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo’s announcement that waivers on the sanctions on Iranian oil exports will be lifted, Saudi state agency SPA reported.

Saudi Arabia believes the US decision is a necessary step to pressure the Iranian government to stop jeopardizing peace and end their global support for terrorism, the Saudi Foreign Minister, Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, said.

The Iranian regime uses the country’s income to finance dangerous policies without any consideration for international law, the minster added.

International pressures on Iran must continue until it stops interfering in the domestic affairs of other countries, he stressed.

Saudi Arabia will continue their strict adherence to the policies, which aim to stabilize international markets, and will not produce oil beyond the balance, Al-Assaf said.

The Kingdom will cooperate with other oil producing countries to produce enough oil for consumers, he added.
