JEDDAH — A Nepalese parliamentary delegation is visiting Saudi Arabia to assess the situation of workers from the country, particularly those who are laid off in recent months.

The delegation held wide-ranging talks with Minister of Labor and Social Development Ali Al-Ghafis, Undersecretary for International Affairs Ziad Al-Sayegh, Undersecretary for Customer Affairs Adnan Naeed and other high-ranking officials of the ministry in Riyadh on Monday.

The delegation, from Nepal’s parliamentary committee on international relations and labor headed by senior parliamentarian Prabhu Sha, drew the attention of the Saudi authorities to several issues concerning Nepalese workers in the Kingdom and sought redressal for them.
