Saudi Arabia has deposited a total of $3 billion with Yemen’s central bank and given technical support, including training, a senior Saudi official has said.

Mohammed al-Jaber, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Yemen, told London-based publication Asharq al-Awsat that the Saudi government had deposited $2 billion with the bank in January, after an earlier deposit of $1 billion. The Saudi government had also given training courses to 15 central bank employees, Jaber told the publication.
