Jeddah- Yemeni Minister of Local Administration and chairman of the Higher Committee for Relief in Yemen Abdul Raqeeb Saif Fateh said that the legitimate government in Yemen has received confirmations from the United Nations including reinforcing its offices in Aden, starting from the end of December.

The legitimate government has pledged not to intervene in the work of these offices and to allow them to carry out their activities in all Yemeni provinces after moving to Aden, which boosts humanitarian efforts in the country, according to Fateh.

The Chairman of the Higher Committee for Relief told Asharq Al-Awsat that the Yemeni legitimate government aimed at activating many partnerships with different organizations and institutions supporting humanitarian efforts, including the United Nations, King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aids and U.A.E. Red Crescent in order to provide services for all Yemenis.

Despite the fact that al-Hudaydah city falls under the control of Houthi militias, the Yemeni Minister pointed out that the legitimate government, represented by Ministry of Local Administration, has launched an appeal so it can be urgently aided from starvation.

He confirmed that the Arab Coalition, Kuwaiti and U.A.E. Red Crescents and King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aids have directly delivered aids to this city.
