Saudi Arabia to provide $8m to tackle Safer oil tanker issue
Saudi Arabia has agreed to provide an additional $8 million to help tackle the
threat posed by the decaying Safer oil tanker anchored off the Yemeni coast.
An agreement was signed in Riyadh by Ahmad bin Ali
Al-Baiz, assistant supervisor for operations and programs at the Saudi aid
agency KSrelief, and Dr. Abdallah Al Darfari, assistant secretary-general and
director of the UN Development Program’s regional bureau for Arab states.
The deal adds to the efforts of KSrelief to tackle
the environmental and economic threats posed by the aging tanker, which remains
moored off the Yemeni coast.
