Saudi Arabia on Monday called for the unconditional implementation of the UN Security Council resolution to end the conflict in neighboring Yemen and intensifying efforts to send humanitarian aid to the country.
The call came during the weekly meeting of the Council of Ministers chaired by Vice Custodian of Two Holy Mosques Muhammad Bin Naif, deputy prime minister and minister of interior, at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah Monday afternoon.
In a statement to Saudi Press Agency (SPA) following the meeting, Minister of Culture and Information Adel Al-Turaifi said the council underlined the content of a speech made by the crown prince while receiving the families of soldiers who were martyred on duty in the terrorist bombing that targeted the Special Emergency Force in Asir Province. In his speech, the crown prince conveyed the condolences of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman to the families of the martyrs and expressed the Kingdom's pride in its citizens who died defending the homeland against the advocates of deviant thought.
Having reviewed the efforts made to support Yemeni people and their legitimate government, the cabinet emphasized the importance of unconditional implementation of the Security Council Resolution No. 2216 to bring Yemen out of its current crisis, simultaneously intensifying efforts to provide humanitarian aid to the brotherly people of Yemen.
The council lauded the humanitarian role of King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Work in delivering aid to meet the basic needs of the Yemeni people in line with the directives of the King.
The council commended the efforts of the security authorities in Kuwait in thwarting a terrorist plot to destabilize the country by arresting a terrorist cell, which stockpiled a huge arsenal of weapons, ammunition, missiles and explosives.
