New York — Saudi Arabia has been a leading donor of humanitarian assistance in the region, acknowledged UN Secretary General spokesperson Stephane Dujarric on the eve of the meeting between Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, second deputy premier and minister of defense, and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

He told an Arabic daily that the meeting on Wednesday will focus on the situation in the Middle East and the major efforts made by the Kingdom in humanitarian aid.

Deputy spokesman for the Secretary General Farhan Haq told the newspaper that the UN shares strong ties with Saudi Arabia.

He noted that Saudi Arabia became an official member of the UN on Oct. 24, the same day that the world body was established.

He said that talks between Prince Muhammad and Ban Ki-moon will tackle Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which the UN sees as a great opportunity that opens the door to sustainable growth.

In this context, President of the UN General Assembly Mogens Lykketoft welcomed Saudi Vision 2030, saying that it specified a group of goals to achieve a vibrant civil society, nourished economy and an ambitious nation through programs and implementable plans.

In an exclusive statement to Asharq Al-Awsat in May, Lykketoft noted that the vision is consistent with the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Paris Climate Deal.

Meanwhile, John Ging, Operations Director for the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), praised Saudi Arabia’s role in Yemen, highlighting the efforts deployed by the King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aids in helping Yemenis overcome their sufferings.
He said that through this center, Riyadh was offering many services to people in need in different areas of Yemen.
