AL-UMMA: Sanaa weekly, 12-2-98. (Al-Haqq Party) [Archives:1998/07/Press Review]

February 16 1998

Main Headlines: 1- Iranians celebrate 19th anniversary of Islamic revolution. 2- Delegation of Yemeni political parties met President Saleh, demanding a unified Arab stance in solidarity with Iraq. 3- Yemeni opposition parties submitted letters of protest to British & US embassies in Sanaa. 4- Haqq Party Secretary-General welcomes President’s call for ‘closing the dossiers of the past.’ Article Summary: Attack by Maps The Yemeni authorities have confiscated a large number of 1998 agendas with maps of the regions showing the Yemeni-Saudi border displaced more to the Saudi advantage. A supplement of the Kuwaiti monthly magazine, Al-Arabi, was also withdrawn by the Yemeni authorities for the same reason. On another level, a Lebanese publishing house has published a world atlas with Yemeni map showing the same bias towards Saudi Arabia. Are these efforts concerted? Are they timed to take place during the border talks between the two countries?
