Saudi and Eritrean foreign ministers meet to discuss bilateral and regional issues

JEDDAH: Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir on Sunday met Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh Mohammed in Jeddah. 

The two foreign ministers discussed issues of mutual interest and the current regional and global developments.

Saudi Arabia and Eritrea enjoy historical and brotherly ties. Following the formation of the Anti-Terror Quartet (ATQ), comprising Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain, Eritrea sided with the group in support of its principled stand. It also stood firmly with the ATQ after it cut ties with Qatar in protest of its support to terrorist groups and Iran, which is openly flouting international laws by interfering in the internal affairs of the countries in the Middle East.

RIYADH: The Ministry of Civil Service, through a strategic partnership with the e-government program “Yesser,” has linked central databases with 90 government agencies representing more than 86 percent of public sector employees.

The database connection was secured after the agencies completed the requirements for sending human resources data through the government integration channel according to the classification of groups specified by the ministry.

This includes the “Eltizam” (commitment) service to provide human resources data including personnel data, jobs, salaries, qualifications, leave and performance evaluation.
