Yemen Times Chief Editor, Walid Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf confirmed that the continuation of Yemen Times is not dependent on the presence of a certain individual or group, but rather is an institution with rules and regulations that organize everything within. He stressed that its neutrality, truth-seeking, and unlike several other newspapers, its independence have made it among the most credible newspapers in Yemen. Apart from that, Mr. Saqqaf said that Yemen Times is the most well-organized and systematically run newspaper in the whole country. With a qualified team, and international standard structure, it has risen to its highest ever level of sales and readership. These statements were given in the Press Committee of the Faculty of Information of Sanaa University organized last Tuesday, June 6 2000 a seminar entitled “Yemeni Press after 10 years of Unity.” Complete details on Law & Diplomacy Page.
