PM meets British Special Envoy for Famine Prevention
[08/12/2020 02:37]

RIYADH - SABA
Prime Minister Dr. Maeen Abdulmalek received the UK’s first Special Envoy for Famine Prevention and Humanitarian Affairs, Nick Dyer, and with him, the head of the Yemen team at the British Department for International Development, Chris Bold.

During the meeting, the tasks of the Special Envoy for Famine Prevention and Humanitarian Affairs were discussed, as part of the UK’s interest in addressing the increasing risks of food insecurity and famine conditions in a group of countries, including Yemen, and the mechanisms of cooperation with the Yemeni government in this aspect.

The meeting touched on the economic and humanitarian priorities that are required to be supported in Yemen, according to the new government program, and coordination and cooperation mechanisms to mobilize resources and international support for Yemen, in addition to improving humanitarian access.

The Prime Minister affirmed that any further collapse of the national economy will contribute to doubling the existing humanitarian catastrophe, which requires the urgent mobilization of international resources to support the new government’s program in this aspect.

He referred to the practices of the Houthi coup militia that compound the disastrous current economic and humanitarian situation, foremost among which is the ban on the newly Riyal bills and the resulting suspension of the payment of salaries of employees in the militia’s areas of control.
