Saudi Arabia’s General Supervisor of King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah met with Canada’s Speaker of House of Commons Geoff Regan on Wednesday.
Dr. Al-Rabiah briefed Regan on the center’s exertions and missions aimed at alleviating the suffering of people across the world, namely war-torn Yemen.
The two discussed aspects of joint cooperation which would serve international humanitarian relief.
The meeting was attended by Saudi Ambassador to Canada Naif bin Bandar Al-Sudairi and a number of officials interested in relief and humanitarian works.
In a key address by Yemen’s Prime Minister Dr. Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, deep gratitude to the center’s efforts in Yemen was expressed .
According to the Saudi state news agency SPA, Daghr stressed that the military operation “Decisive Storm” launched by King Salman, has held back untold damage that would have taken down regional security.
Daghr urged insurgency forces in Yemen, such as Houthi militias and forces loyal to deposed president Ali Saleh, to refer to reason and set national interest and that of the people far and foremost.
PM Daghr reiterated the necessity of stopping bloodshed in Yemen, and implementing the UN Security Council resolution No. 2216.
Pro-legitimacy forces in Yemen have long demanded that paramilitary weapons and artillery in the hands of coup militias be handed to authorities as a token of good intentions towards peace in Yemen. Houthi militias have yet accepted to turn in illegal weapons in their pursuit of taking over the countries.
Daghr also highlighted that if a peace processes were to be put in effect, coup militias will need to withdraw from cities and regions as to pave the way for a political solution based on the GCC initiative, its executive mechanism and outcomes of national dialogue.
He explained that urgent and crucial duties lie before the Yemeni government, citing the restoration of security and stability across liberated territory.
Daghr announced that the government would dedicate the rehabilitation project in the coming days.
