Official talks between Iran and Yemen took place in Tehran on the 17th of April. The Yemeni delegation, lead by Vice Minister Abdulqadir Bajammal will be discussing issues of mutual interest with Iranian Foreign Minister Dr. Kamal Kharazi and other top ranking Iranian officials. Political observers see this visit as a preparation for President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s visit to Iran, which is expected to occur next month. Iran and Yemen are known to enjoy political, historical and cultural ties which could serve as a prelude to expansion of the already excellent relations between the two countries.
