The United Nations said it appreciated Saudi Arabia's “generous support” to its refugee agency.
Philip Lazzarini, the commissioner-general of the UN’s Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) expressed the UN’s support in a letter addressed to the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief).
Lazzarini thanked the Kingdom for its “support and vital role that had a great impact on the Palestinian refugees, noting the strategic relationship between the Kingdom” and the Palestinian parties, which “has lasted for decades.”
The statement also said the Kingdom is also looking forward to more cooperation between the two sides.
Meanwhile, the UN representative for refugees in Yemen, Jean-Nicolas Pius, also expressed his thanks and appreciation to Saudi Arabia for the generous support provided to refugees and internally displaced persons in Yemen.
“With the escalation of the Yemeni crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic, the donation of the last center came as an unforgettable gesture that contributed to helping 1.4 million displaced people, while providing thousands of needy families with urgent shelter and food supplies,” Pius said.
