Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Jassim Mohammed Al-Budaiwi emphasized on Friday the GCC’s firm position in support of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state according to the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He urged the international community to work decisively and without delay to ensure the recognition of the State of Palestine and grant the Palestinian people their basic and legitimate rights in line with UN resolutions and international law.

Al-Budaiwi said the US veto of the Palestinian membership application to the UN is a step backward in the efforts to achieve just and comprehensive peace in the Middle East.

He stressed that the UN Security Council must take serious steps to re-evaluate international mechanisms concerning peace, to ensure that peoples’ rights are respected and regional and global security and stability are safeguarded.

He stressed that all countries and international organizations must stand by justice and support efforts to restore rights and build a better future for all the peoples of the region and the world.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed an executive program with the World Health Organization (WHO) to boost water and sanitation services in healthcare facilities in Yemen, reported the Saudi Press Agency on Tuesday.

The program, valued at $3.75 million, was signed during the 77th session of the WHO's General Assembly in Geneva.

The agreement was signed by Advisor to the Royal Court and KSrelief General Supervisor of Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

It aims to implement various initiatives, including drilling solar-powered wells in ten healthcare facilities, providing potable water supplies, water quality monitoring, and treatment in 60 healthcare facilities, and conducting training on the operation and maintenance of water supplies.

The program includes the construction of a tower tank in Al-Khawkhah District in the Hodeidah Governorate and rehabilitation efforts to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene services in the Marib Governorate Hospital and Matnah Hospital in the Sanaa Governorate.

These efforts are a crucial part of Saudi Arabia's ongoing humanitarian and relief projects through KSrelief, which aim to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people amid the severe humanitarian crisis they are facing.
