GCC relief organisation team to meet

By Wam

The Office of Humanitarian and Relief Assistance Coordination being provided by the Gulf Cooperation Council for Arab States (GCC) to the Republic of Yemen, will hold its first meeting in Riyadh on Monday.

The GCC Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Negotiations, Dr. Abdulaziz Hamad Al-U'waisheq, said the meeting will review viewpoints of relief and humanitarian organisations in the Gulf Cooperation Council for Arab States concerning the Council's comprehensive draft plan for aid to the Republic of Yemen in 2016.

The meeting, in which officials from GCC relief organisations, General Secretariat and the Yemeni government will participate, comes in the framework of preparations for the International Conference of Coordination of Relief Work and Humanitarian Assistance being provided to the Republic of Yemen to be held in Riyadh later this year.
