Saudi Arabia will send oil derivatives to Yemen’s Aden to support power and water plants, the Saudi Ambassador to Yemen Mohammed bin Saeed Al-Jaber said on Wednesday.

Jaber also serves as executive director of the Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations and the supervisor of the Saudi program for the development and reconstruction of Yemen.

“Several projects have been executed in Yemen, including the Seiyun Hospital which was fully equipped and which includes five different clinics,” Jaber said while meeting with a number of diplomats and researchers interested in Yemen in his office in Riyadh.

According to Jaber, the hospital was equipped based on the same standards adopted in Al Jawf Hospital and using the same equipment used in the kingdom’s hospitals.

He added that there were programs being implemented in Yemen’s Al Mahrah in the fields of education, health and agriculture.

Jaber also said that the program also executed a number of projects in Yemen’s island of Socotra, such as power and other developmental projects, adding that the Dhale road which links Aden and Sanaa is about to be completed and cars have begun to use parts of it.

During the meeting, Jaber voiced the importance of supporting the entire Yemeni economy and presented a future vision to support the humanitarian and economic situation of Yemen and to develop and reconstruct Yemen at this current phase and in the future.
