Resorting to International Arbitration is an Option
Interior Minister Hussain Mohammed Arab has affirmed that resorting to international arbitration to solve the border dispute with Saudi Arabia is a natural option. He said that Yemen may resort to it anytime it feels that the problem could not be solved amicably. Such an option is possible without any problems attached.
Shifting to another issue, the Minister said that the government’s tabled law on demonstrations was meant to organize and not limit public assemblies. He said that the constitution stipulated freedom of opinion but at the same time affirmed the importance of organizing that right.
