The Yemeni Lebanese Fraternity Association bid farewell in a dinner reception held on Saturday 8 to Hassan Muslimani, the Lebanese Ambassador to Yemen, who ends his diplomatic term in Yemen this month.
Yahya Mohamed Abdullah Saleh expressed his appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Muslimani for his effort in establishing the association and his role in supporting it throughout the different stages.
“It was all Mr. Muslimani's idea. He started it, encouraged us to build the association and even invited us at his home for sessions to promote the association.” Yahya said.
On his part, Muslimani thanked the association for the farewell ceremony and said that the objective of the association was to consolidate Yemen-Lebanon relations and build a foundation that would be implanted deep in Yemen and serve as another effort to enhance the relations between the two countries in every possible way.
“I believe that the association has done a lot in promoting Yemeni-Lebanese relations, and I am confident that even after I leave, it will continue to play its important role in this aspect,” he said.
The occasion also marked the official inauguration of the Lebanese Club, located at the premises of the Yemeni Lebanese Fraternity Association. The club will be a recreational center for members of the association and others. It includes a discoth'que room, billiard, table tennis, children playground, and other similar entertainment facilities.
