The international economic Quartet on Yemen on Tuesday addressed the economic and humanitarian situation in the war-torn country.

Representatives of Yemen Quad nations – Saudi Arabia, UAE, UK and USA – held a meeting for senior officials and ambassadors in Riyadh, the Saudi Press Agency said.

The meeting hailed the Riyadh Agreement and stressed on its full application, SPA added.

The pact's provisions need to be fulfilled, particularly in terms of managing the State's revenues and empowering the Higher Economic Council, the Central Organ for Control and Audit and the National Authority for Combating Corruption, the Quartet saw, to improve the economic situation and boost the Central Bank's performance.

The Yemen Quartet was established in June 2016 to consist of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States of America.

Yemen 4.5-year conflict has triggered what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with most of the population in need for a type of humanitarian aid and immediate protection, including 14 million people risking famine and some 1.8 million children suffering malnutrition.

On 5 November, the Saudi-brokered Riyadh Agreement was inked by the Yemeni internationally-recognized government and he UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) in Riyadh.

Under the power-sharing deal, the STC would be included into the government that would return to Aden, and STC unofficial armed units would be integrated in defense and interior ministries.
