Saudi reaffirms full support for the stability of Yemen
Saudi arabia–The Saudi Cabinet reiterated its unequivocal support on Tuesday for all measures that might contribute to ensuring the security and stability of Yemen and its people.
King Salman presided over the meeting in Jeddah’s Al-Salam Palace. The Cabinet members expressed their gratitude for the UN’s efforts to improve the adherence to the ceasefire in Yemen, in line with the Saudi initiative, announced in March of last year, to end the crisis in the country and reach a comprehensive political resolution, according to Issam bin Saad bin Saeed, the member for Shoura Council affairs and acting minister of media.
The ministers also expressed their hope that the Riyadh International Humanitarian Forum, which will take place in February and is being organized by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center in collaboration with the UN, will aid in efforts to find creative and useful solutions that can help provide humanitarian aid to the highest standards and realize the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Ministers also reaffirmed the Kingdom’s claim that it supports international efforts to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and put its nuclear facilities under a thorough system of safeguards overseen by the International Atomic Energy Agency, which was made this month during the 10th Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
The council declared that one of the cornerstones of the Kingdom’s energy policy is the stability and balance of the oil markets. As seen by Saudi Arabia’s crucial role in developing and upholding the OPEC+ agreement on production limits, it was stated that oil was a crucial component in assisting the expansion of the global economy.
A number of decisions were approved by the council before the meeting was over. The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development assigned the Saudi Authority for Data and Artificial Intelligence’s board chairman the task of negotiating a draft administrative agreement between Saudi Arabia and the bank on a multi-donor trust fund for a partnership in digital development.
To create and sign a cooperation agreement between their ministries and their Thai counterparts in the energy and tourist sectors, the ministers of tourism and energy were tasked.
Two MoUs for collaboration in the transport and logistics sector between the Kingdom’s Ministry of Transport and Logistics Services and the French Ministry of Ecological Transition as well as an agreement on labour cooperation between the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development and the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of Azerbaijan were also approved.
Additionally, the MoU for collaboration between the British Office for National Statistics and the Saudi General Authority for Statistics was authorized by the ministers.
