SANAA, Deputy Prime Minister for Security and Defense Affairs Maj. Gen. Jalal Al-Rowaishan Wednesday met in capital Sanaa with Deputy Executive Director at UN World Food Programme (WFP) Amir Mahmoud Ahmad Abdullah and his accompanying delegation, who are currently in visit to Yemen.
During the meeting, the humanitarian activities of programme and the obstacles facing it were discussed, as well as the importance of strengthening coordination with the relevant authorities to ensure reach of aid to the needy.
The meeting dealt with the mechanism of facilitating the disbursement of aid to needy people through the programme and addressed the difficulties facing them in coordination with the competent authorities.
Major General Rowaishan noted the activities carried out by the program in light of the US-saudi coalition aggression and the importance of transparency and coordination with the relevant parties to deliver humanitarian assistance to the needy.
He pointed out that there are areas that do not reach the aid of the program, despite the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in a frightening manner, such as Durihimy area in Hodeidah, which is currently suffering from famine because of the entry prevention to humanitarian aid and the inability of the people of the region to displacement due to difficult financial conditions.
For his part, the official of WFP stressed the importance to the programme to continue its role in alleviating the suffering of the Yemeni people in general and those with low income in particular in cooperation and coordination with the competent bodies and support them to facilitate its activities in reaching the needy.
He wished Yemen and its people to overcome the current ordeal as soon as possible in order to put an end to the great tragedy they were going through.
