Within the framework of the cultural and educational cooperation between Yemen and Saudi Arabia, which started after signing the agreement of the boundaries between both the countries in the Year 2004, 18 school principals have headed to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for the purpose of a short term course that will last for two weeks.
About 156 students went last year to Saudi Arabia, to study in the Saudi universities, and out of which 109 students are studying in the faculties of education (teachers). The other students are distributed among different Saudi universities. This educational cooperation between the two countries is the first of its kind since the Gulf war that occurred in 1990.
