During his two-day visit to Yemen (October 30-31) the American Assistant Secretary of State for the Near East, Mr. Martin Indyck, had met President Ali Abdullah Saleh and other high-ranking officials. One of the reasons behind the visit, according to Mr. Indyck, is to further develop the bilateral relations between Yemen and the USA. Other issues discussed included the UN Security Council’s position towards Iraq, combating terrorism, and the progress of the Middle East peace process. Mr. Indyck expressed his satisfaction for Yemen’s intention to participate in the November economic summit in Doha, Qatar. “It is a valuable opportunity for participating countries, because it will bring together over 600 international companies,” said Mr. Indyck of the Doha conference.
