NEW YORK: Adviser to the Royal Court and general supervisor of the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid (KSRelief), Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, on Friday met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the sidelines of the World Humanitarian Day Conference 2017.
The Saudi ambassador to the UN, Abdullah bin Yahya Al-Muallami, also attended the meeting.
Al-Rabeeah stressed the Kingdom’s humanitarian role, represented by KSRelief, in crises worldwide.
The meeting explored efforts exerted in Yemen by KSRelief, which has implemented 101 projects for children covering food, health, nutrition, education, and social and health rehabilitation at a cost of $260 million, he said.
The meeting also discussed humanitarian and relief work, as well as cooperation and partnership between KSRelief and UN organizations.
Addressing the conference, Al-Rabeeah urged the international community to attach great importance to protecting humanitarian and relief workers, as well as beneficiaries of their services.
“We extend our deep thanks and appreciation to humanitarian workers and volunteers around the world, irrespective of their religious and racial differences,” he said.
He said support and finance to any individual, group or state for any form of violence or terror against innocent citizens or relief and humanitarian workers is considered a despicable act and a flagrant violation of international and humanitarian law.
“We have to exert maximum effort to safeguard the lives of relief workers and those receiving humanitarian and relief assistance.”
