Yemen to Boycott WTO if Israel Attends Doha Conference [Archives:2001/30/Front Page]

July 23 2001

The Yemeni government has decided to boycott the World Trade Organization (WTO) conference to be held in Doha in November if Israel participates, as mentioned by sources in Qatar.
An official told the weekly 26 September newspaper that “Yemen will boycott the WTO ministerial conference in Qatar … if Israel takes part,”
“It is rather difficult to take part in such a conference under such circumstances, especially while Israel is waging an unjustified, Zionist inspired aggression and genocide against the Palestinian people,” it said.
It is worth mentioning that the committee organizing the conference to be held during 9-13 November this year confirmed last week that Israel will attend and participate in the international event.
