SANAA, April 15 (YPA) – Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf met on Sunday in the capital Sanaa with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)’s delegation led by deputy director general of the agency, ambassador Manuel Bessler.

Sharaf praised Swiss government’s role in mitigating effects of the humanitarian disaster caused by Saudi-Emirati aggression that targeted deliberately all economic potential and infrastructure of the Yemeni people and imposed an unjust blockade on the country.
