Aiming at strengthening mutual understanding between Japan and Yemen, a collection of 150 books about Japan in English is donated today by the Japan Foundation to the Yemeni- Japanese Friendship Association.

Mr. Yuichi Ishii, Ambassador of Japan handed over a list of these books to Haj Mohammed Mubarak Adhban, Chairman of Yemeni- Japanese Friendship Association today at the Association. On this occasion, the Embassy stresses upon the importance of mutual understanding between different cultures, and hopes that the Japanese language students at the Association would learn more about Japan through theses books.

This is the third time the Japan Foundation donated library materials regarding Japan to Yemen. The past donations have been done to Sana'a University and AL-Saeed Foundation for science and culture in Taiz respectively.
