October 6 1997

Main Headlines: 1) Yemeni-Saudi Border Deal: Land for Support 2) National Navigation Company to be Sold to 5 Private Companies Monopolizing Shipping & Unloading in Aden 3) Socialist Party Politburo Holds Meeting at President’s House Article Summary: The Price of Silence – editorial The Yemeni-Saudi border settlement concerns all the citizens of Yemen. The secrecy of negotiations conducted between the two sides must be rejected. It is a question of the fate of future generations. It is a calamity that Saudi Arabia captures new areas; while, the opposition parties and the people in general keep silent. This can be the beginning of a downward spiral of encroachment and loss of more land. There is no excuse whatever for the silence. It is a matter of sovereignty and destiny.
