Saudi envoy to UN meets KSRelief delegation

NEW YORK: Abdallah Al-Mouallimi, Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative to the UN, received a delegation from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) that is participating in meetings of the Advisory Group of the Global Coalition for the Reintegration of Former Child Soldiers.

The delegation’s participation comes in response to the UN’s invitation to review the Kingdom’s outstanding efforts to rehabilitate child recruits and those affected by the conflict in Yemen. The meetings were held over two days at Columbia University in New York, and involved experts, academics and researchers.

The aim was to gather research and knowledge from NGOs and academics regarding the reintegration of children.

RIYADH: A criminal investigation has been launched after an armed man intercepted a vehicle taking part in a rally in Saudi Arabia.

Fifty-nine cars, seven motorcycles, seven quads and one truck tackled the even, which was the third stage of the Saudi Toyota Desert Rally Championship.
