US dollar continues to rise, hitting 1,706 riyals in Aden

SANAA, May 16 (YPA) – Foreign currencies continued on Thursday their upward journey in the banks of the city of Aden and the southern and eastern Yemeni provinces, where the price of the US dollar reached 1,706 riyals and the Saudi riyal approached 450 riyals.

This is attributed to the economic deterioration and the lack of any significant reforms from the government loyal to the Saudi-led coalition.

On the other hand, the dollar in Sanaa and the provinces controlled by the Supreme Political Council was not affected by any developments, maintaining its price at 530 riyals and the Saudi riyal at 139.70 riyals.
