The Egyptian government has extended a formal invitation to Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf, Chief Editor of the Yemen Times for a five-day visit which is expected to start on February 7th.
The program calls for meetings with four ministers (including the foreign minister), several other key officials, media leaders, intellectuals, and other personalities. “The climax of the visit is going to be the audience with H.E. President Hosni Mubarak,” he said.

In addition, Dr. Al-Saqqaf is expected to give two lectures on Yemen; one at Al-Ahram Strategic Center, and the other at the Arab Organization for Human Rights
The visit, which will take place a week before the Supreme Yemeni-Egyptian Ministerial Committee, is expected to zero in on topics of bilateral concern. The Yemen Times will also raise regional and international issues, and the Egyptian vision and position on them.
