For his part, the agricultural minister confirmed that his ministry is currently implementing a total of programs and activities to contribute in achieving the food security, especially in light of the crisis and the blockade experienced by the country due to the aggression.

He reviewed a number of obstacles facing the ministry's activities, including the scarcity of resources and a lot of damage suffered by the agricultural sector because of the aggression, which has impacted negatively on the agricultural sector's productivity.
