Commander of the 5th Fleet of the US Central Command Thomas Moore arrives in Yemen on February 13 on a 2-day visit to meet a number of officials and take part in opening the 2nd phase of the national program for demining installations in Aden that had been funded by the US.
The United States is so far the major supporter of the national program and its contribution has amounted to 5 million dollars worth of training, installations, supplies and vehicles.
Demining groups continue their work in both governorates of Aden and Lahj. Last week they worked in Al-Hubail area in Lahj and Bahqula in Aden as part of the demining program.
