Marine agreements with Oman [Archives:2004/716/Local News]

March 1 2004

The members of the Shura council and parliament held a joint meeting in Sana'a on Feb. 26 to discuss the marine border agreements signed last December by Oman and Yemen.
The discussions will also include the regulatory system to establish the Sana'a Cooperation Gathering that was signed in Addis Ababa in the end of last December.
According to the constitution, joint meetings of members of Shura and parliament are being done upon summons by the President to be the event in which voting on crucial issues will take place.
The speaker of the parliament usually chairs such joint sessions, which should end up with either the approval or rejection of signed agreements and treaties related to reconciliation, peaceful resolutions, border agreements, and similar issues of grave importance for the republic.
