DUBAI: The Yemeni Prime Minister said the government is putting additional efforts to enhance the performance of state institutions, normalize the situation and start the reconstruction of the country, Saudi national news agency SPA reported Wednesday.

The government is performing its responsibilities towards all Yemenis without exception to alleviate the suffering caused by the war, Moin Abdul Malek told the Turkish ambassador in a meeting.

The Prime Minister also mentioned the various reforms the government adopted to halt economic collapse and save the currency.
