The newspaper's editorial says Yemen and Ethiopia are two historical countries related with deep-rooted bonds embodied by cultural and social interrelationship that has given it its development seen in the relations of cooperation and partnership. Out of this reality and vision came the recent visit of president Ali Abdulla Saleh to the republic of Ethiopia and its results depicting the two countries' positive orientation towards enhancement of their relations and expansion of fields of partnership in economy. Regionally the visit embodied the two countries' realisation of the importance of stability for development of their relations with all countries in the region to certain levels guaranteeing continuation of their development that meets requirements of their peoples in development and progress. Absence of peace and stability in the Red Sea and the Horn of Africa negatively affects all the region's countries and consequently the international situation.
Yemen's keenness on re-establishment of peace and stability in this region is based on a vision comprehending the importance of building bilateral relations and cooperation among its countries reflecting its civilized nature. The tripartite grouping of Yemen, Ethiopia and Sudan is the ideal formula for dealing with current and future interests with collective responsibility aimed at its final result to build equal partnership among its countries.
