SANA'A, Oct. 90 (Saba) - The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) opened on Tuesday its office in Sana'a as part of the implementation of the Riyadh donor meeting's decisions.
The GCC office's manager Sa'ad al-Arifi told SABA that the office would perfume its duties via the embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the GCC current rotating president, saying that the office's inauguration is a step forward in strengthening the existing partnership between Yemen and GCC.
The office will add much flexibility and facility to the cooperation between Yemen and GCC's States, which are keen on supporting Yemen in the current critical stage, al-Arifi said.
Later, Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Mohammed al-Sa'adi met with al-Arifi.
The Minister hailed the GCC general-secretariat's initiative of inaugurating an office in Sana'a, expressing full confidence that such move would boost up the bilateral relations and ease the current and future cooperation trends between Yemen and the GCC's States.
Al-Arifi voiced the GCC States leaders' keenness on strengthening the economic and political support to Yemen and helping the Yemeni government to fulfill the transitional stage's difficult requirements.
