RIYADH: His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s envoy, Foreign Minister and State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Dr Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah, delivered a letter from His Highness the Amir to Yemen’s President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi in Riyadh yesterday. The letter discussed brotherly ties that bind the two nations and the latest regional and global developments.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Ahmad Bin Mubarak had said earlier yesterday that a delegation from the Yemeni government held talks with the Saudi side to discuss the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement. During the talks, both sides focused on security and Military issues and guarantees of the return of the Yemeni government to Eden. In a statement for Eden Satellite Channel, the Minister said, “we positively discussed ways to create a suitable atmosphere to implement the Riyadh agreement signed by the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council in November 2019.

He pointed that the government was keen to boost the trust between all parties involved in the process of forming a government, but the escalations affected its performance and existence in the capital Eden. The government was able to work positively during the last months despite many commonalities with all parties including the transitional Council, he explained. The Minister highly evaluated “the sincere Saudi efforts to support the Yemeni case.”

Meanwhile, Kuwait Society for Relief said on Friday it completed handing out 6,000 food packs to people in Yemen across five governorates as part of a campaign, which has been ongoing for six years now. The food will go to displaced families and host communities of the impoverished in the governorates of Hadhramaut, Shabwah, Marib, Taiz and Al-Jawf. This year’s campaign, which began in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, aims to distribute 24,000 food packs to a total 10 governorates, in coordination with four local humanitarian relief organizations, the charity’s Yemen office deputy director Adel Baashen said. – AFP
