The current visit of His Highness Sheikh Ali Al-Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, son of the Emir of the State of Kuwait, and the Governor of Al-Jahra Governorates to Temen. There is also a high ranking Qatari delegation headed by H.E. Abdullah Ahmed Al-Attiya Minister of Energy which recently arrived on Saturday. These along with the late visits of Saudi delegates are all proof . Yemen and the Gulf countries are slowly recreating their old history of strong bond. Prime Minister Ba Jammal has stated that he intends to increase bilateral cooperation with neighboring countries, including all Gulf countries, and the countries of the horn of Africa. President Saleh’s latest visit to Eritrea and the country’s continuous efforts to solve the political disputes in Somalia are all indication of Yemen’s intention to maintain good relations with all her neighbors. No doubt, the government is pushing hard to regain the trust and economic support of neighboring rich countries to help Yemen in the current program of economic reforms.
