Yemeni FM grateful for Kuwait’s efforts to protect stability

ADEN, Yemeni Foreign Minister Mohammad Al-Hadrami hailed Kuwait’s efforts to create peace and stability in Yemen and the Arab World as part of its non-permanent membership at the UN Security Council (UNSC).

In a statement to KUNA, Al-Hadrami noted that Kuwait’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, led by current Prime Minister, His Highness Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, represented the Arab World greatly in key international events.

He also applauded the country’s continuous efforts to execute the articles of the GCC initiative for Yemen and the UNSC’s articles on Yemen’s stability, mainly article number 2216.

Moreover, the minister said Yemenis have deep appreciation for Kuwait’s humanitarian aid and funds for development projects in his country, under direct orders from His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

Meanwhile, he spoke of Kuwait’s role in hosting Yemeni dialogue, especially in 2016, to resolve the situation in the country, as well as taking part in the Saudi-led coalition for supporting Yemen’s legitimacy.

As for the humanitarian part, Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) is continuously delivering aid to people in need in Yemen, said Al-Hadrami. Kuwait was also one of the top countries funding the UN’s Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen, with the country providing over USD 227 million for 2019 alone.

Yemeni officials are meeting with their Kuwaiti counterparts on regular basis to discuss the recent developments in his country, said the minister.

He noted his recent meeting with His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled during the 18th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit held in Baku, Azerbaijan last November, where they discussed boosting bilateral ties and cooperation and Yemen’s peace process.

He expressed his gratitude to His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled’s efforts to develop the Kuwaiti-Yemeni ties, wishing him the best in his new position.
