December 11 2000

A ministerial commission grouping ministers of Foreign Affairs, Justice, Legal Affairs and Interior has been assigned by the Cabinet to further discuss an agreement on fighting terrorism that was approved by the United Nations on December 9 1999.
The parliament has already endorsed an agreement on resisting bombings despite the objection of many MPs.
Political parties have expressed their concern about the agreement which they say would make Yemen subject to more external pressures.
