DUBAI: Saudi Arabia is continuing its humanitarian work to help the people in Yemen, the Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Abdallah Yahya Al-Mouallimi said during a media briefing in New York on Thursday, the Saudi press agency SPA reported.

The spokesman for the KSRelief, Dr. Samer Al-Jatili, gave a presentation during the briefing which outlined the Saudi governments efforts to help the people of the war-torn country, including Hodeidah, since the beginning of the crisis.

Dr Jatilis presentation noted that since 2015, the campaign has consisted of combating epidemics, promoting environmental sanitation, providing drinking water and distributing food aid.

Saudi Arabias most recent effort was the convoy of 45 trucks carrying 924 tons of food, medical and shelter assistance to the people of Hodeidah, which was meant to alleviate the humanitarian suffering from the blockade imposed by the Iran-backed Houthi militias.

The Yemeni ambassador to the US also stated that the Houthi militia have rejected all initiatives presented by former UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed and the current envoy Martin Griffith to find practical solutions to avoid military operations to retake Hodeidah.

The Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates, Lana Nusseibeh, was also present at the press conference along with other senior officials.
