Saudi Arabia's Commerce Ministry improves English certificate issuance

RIYADH: The Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Investment has launched a new service that enables holders of commercial registration to obtain the English certificate online.
The move aims to raise the level of services provided by the ministry to boost business growth.
The issuance of commercial registration certificates in English used to go through many stages, starting with manual translation in accredited bureaus outside the ministry, which required the ministry’s approval.
The Ministry of Commerce and Investment invites holders of commercial registration wishing to benefit from the service to visit its website: E.mci.gov.sa.

British ambassador to Saudi Arabia condemns Houthi drone attack targeting the Kingdom

LONDON: Britain’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia condemned the Houthis for launching drones toward the Saudi city of Najran.
The Arab coalition intercepted the drones launched across the border from Yemen on Wednesday.
Neil Crompton denounced the attack that aimed for “civilian targets,” and said the Houthis “must cease such attacks.”
“If the Houthis want to show they are serious about peace, they must cease such attacks and agree to Griffiths’ proposals,” the ambassador said Thursday, referring to a roadmap set out by the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths.
On Wednesday, Arab coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said the Houthi militia continued to violate international humanitarian law by launching drones and deliberately targeting civilians and residential areas, threatening the lives of hundreds of civilians.
He also said the Houthis have violated a cease-fire that was announced last month 4,455 times so far.
Meanwhile, Yemen’s Information Minister Moammar Al-Eryani warned against Houthi recruitment of African refugees and illegal immigrants to fight against the legitimate government in the country.
He said that African refugees and illegal immigrants were being tortured and forced to fight in Houthi ranks, smuggle drugs and carry out espionage tasks.
