  • Description

    Abdel-Aziz Abdel-Ghani, Prime Minister of the Yemen Arab Republic, arrived in Damascus on Sunday (June 19) for an official three-day visit to Syria. He had come at the invitation of the Syrian Prime Minister, Major-General Abdul Rahman Khulaifawi.

    SYNOPSIS: Among the first officials the visitor spoke with at the Prime Minister's headquarters was the Foreign Minister, Abdul Halim Khaddam. Only two weeks previously, the Yemen Arab Republic had proposed an Arab summit conference to discuss problems confronting the Arab world.

    Syrian leaders received their visitors for the first formal discussions within hours of the Yemeni delegation's arrival. Both countries maintain strong defence forces and have embarked on ambitious programmes to expand their domestic education systems at primary and general secondary levels. The Yemen Arab Republic is one of four Arab League countries who want to make the Red Sea a peace zone. Security of the Red Sea has become a sensitive issue throughout the Arab world.
