RIYADH: In a major move to boost the humanitarian response in war-torn Yemen, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) will hold a high-level meeting of major stakeholders including ministers and UN officials in Riyadh on Sunday.
A KSRelief statement said that “the focus will be mainly on how to enhance humanitarian response in Yemen.” About 300 delegates including ministers, planners, politicians, heads of UN agencies besides top Saudi and Yemeni officials will attend the Riyadh meeting.
“The meeting will be addressed by top Saudi, Yemeni and UN officials including Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, supervisor general of KSRelief and adviser at the royal court; Dr. Abdulmalik Al-Mekhlafi, Yemen’s deputy premier and minister of foreign affairs; Sir Mark Lowcock, UN under-secretary for humanitarian affairs,” said the statement.
A few other prominent speakers at the KSRelief meeting are Abdul Raqeeb Fatah, Yemeni minister of local administration and the chairman of the Supreme Committee for Relief in Yemen; Kelly T. Clements, UNHCR deputy commissioner; and Elisabeth Rasmusson, WFP assistant deputy director. The KSRelief, which is organizing this meeting, has spent $8.2 billion on aid for Yemen since its opening in 2015.
