President Saleh in Canada in September [Archives:1998/14/Front Page]
In a new milestone in Yemeni-Canadian relations, President Ali Abdullah Saleh is planning a visit to Canada before the end of this year. In response to an official invitation, the visit is planned to most probably take place during the first half of September, 1998. “We are going to witness new highs in our bilateral relations,” an elated Yemeni official said. This is due to the fact that a large business group usually accompanies the president in his overseas trips.
Similarly, the President of the Consultative Council, Mr. Abdulaziz Abdulghani, in response to an invitation from the President of the Canadian Senate, is planning a visit to Canada. No time has been set.
At the economic level, the Canadian International Development Agency, is planning to up its aid cooperation with Yemen. Towards that end, a CIDA delegation will visit the country during June 1998. CIDA has already granted four graduate scholarships for five years, starting next year.
