Saudi Arabia’s King Salman received Thursday the executive director of the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP), according to an official statement.

King Salman welcomed Ertharin Cousin in Jeddah as part of a one-day visit to the kingdom.

“As a result of our decades of collaboration, WFP’s partnership with... Saudi Arabia has helped save millions of lives worldwide,” Cousin said.

“Working together, we can meet the food needs of hungry, poor people around the world.”

Saudi Arabia is one of the WFP’s largest donors. Earlier this year, the kingdom pledged a contribution that would cover the full humanitarian appeal for Yemen, including food needs.
