The Saudi Foreign Ministry welcomed on Monday the signing of a peace deal between the Sudanese government and five armed groups.

The agreement is an important step towards achieving the ambitions of the fraternal Sudanese people and their just hopes for peace, development and prosperity, it added.

The deal also bolsters Sudan’s sovereignty, independence, national unity and regional security, it stressed.

The Ministry hailed the will and efforts of the transitional government and armed groups for prioritizing national interests and reaching the agreement. It hailed in this regard the significant mediation carried out by South Sudan in helping reach the accord.

It called on remaining parties of the conflict to seize this historic opportunity and join the peace process.

The Foreign Ministry underscored the Kingdom’s complete support of Sudan as it pursues efforts to bolster its security and stability.

Sudan's power-sharing government signed a peace agreement with the country's five key armed groups on Monday.

The deal, signed in the South Sudanese capital Juba, offers the groups political representation and devolved powers, integration into the security forces, economic and land rights and the chance of return for displaced people.

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.
