    Background: South Yemen's Defence Minister, Colonel Ali Ahmed Nasser al-Salami arrived in Damascus last Friday (25 April) bearing a goodwill message to the Syrian government from South Yemen's new leader Ali Nasser Mohammed.

    SYNOPSIS: South Yemen President Abdul-Fattah Ismail resigned last week on health grounds as chairman of the Presidential Council and Secretary-General of the South Yemen Socialist Party. Prime Minister Nasser Mohammed was appointed in his stead as Committee Secretary-General and will act as Presidential Council Chairman until the next meeting of the Higher People's Parliament. The new leader already has committed his country to continue its alliance with the Soviet Union and has indicated that South Yemen will not deviate from the staunchly pro-Moscow politics of Mr Ismail.
