Government interested in permanent peace, says senior official
Under-Secretary of Foreign Minister Ausan Al-Aoud stated that Yemeni government is very keen to establish sustainable peace and alleviate the population’s suffering in collaboration with international organizations and donor countries by mobilizing resources and providing humanitarian assistance and improving basic services.
His statement came as he gave Yemen’s word at the conclusion of the meetings of foreign ministers of the member states of the Association of Countries Overlooking the Indian Ocean held Saturday in Duran, South Africa.
Al-Aoud touched upon the Luban tropical storm which hit Yemen’ eastern coat and Al-Maharah province last month. He pointed out to the damages caused by the natural disaster to infrastructure, calling for aiding Yemen through capacity building programs that can help developing Yemeni apparatuses’ capacities to manage the consequences of natural disasters.
