Yemen’s Foreign Minister Abdulmalik Al-Mekhlafi said during his speech at the UN General Assembly session on Yemen, that the the government is ready to cooperate in all fields in order to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis.

However, he blamed the international community for indiscriminately accusing everyone of obstructing the resolution, and urged it to define the parties responsible.

Al-Mekhlafi expressed his hope that the children of Yemen receive support and the necessary assistance, especially with the spread of the phenomenon of dropping out of schools and recruiting them by the militias to participate in the war.

Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Rabiah, supervisor-general of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Centre, said during the meeting that Saudi Arabia's total aid to Yemen exceeded $ 221 million, focusing on food, medicine, education and developing infrastructure.

He said that Saudi Arabia had responded directly to the donors’ conference in Geneva, contributed urgently to medical organizations and provided $75 million to combat cholera in Yemen.
