Abdullah al-Rabeeah signed two agreements with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) on Wednesday, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Al-Rabeeah met with FAO Director General Qu Dongyu at the organization’s headquarters in Rome, Italy.
At the meeting, the two sides discussed issues of mutual interest in humanitarian and relief efforts, primarily those related to food security, nutrition and early recovery, SPA reported.
The first agreement signed included strengthening cooperation and providing a framework for advancing goals related to improving food security and combating malnutrition at the international level.
The second agreement involved the implementation of an emergency farm living conditions relief project for residents affected by the humanitarian crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic in Yemen’s Hajjah and Lahaj provinces.
“The agreement aims to improve food security and nutrition by providing immediate support to farmers and the most deprived families in farming communities,” SPA said.
Al-Rabeeah said the first agreement is intended to ensure cooperation between the two sides in various fields, while the second agreement would help many individuals in Yemen.
