SANA'A, Jan. 28 (Saba) - Prime Minister Dr. Abdul Aziz Saleh bin Habtoor met here on Saturday with Chief of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) mission in Yemen Laurent de Boeck.

In the meeting, the IOM official briefed Dr. bin Habtoor on the organization's activity in cooperation with the concerned authorities in the areas of migration and relief for the displaced.

The prime minister confirmed the government's support to the IOM activities in Yemen, including the cooperation in the implementation of the project to fight those diseases in the targeted areas.
