Yemeni officials began preparing for the Friend of Yemen conference, which is scheduled to be held in Riyadh at the end of March, Egypt's Al-Wafd daily reported Tuesday (February 28th).

Yemen Today television reported Tuesday that President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi met with Dr. Abdullatif al-Zayani, secretary general of the Gulf Co-operation Council, in Sanaa about the possibility of supporting the Yemeni currency by depositing $5 billion in the Central Bank of Yemen.

The network reported that al-Zayani said during yesterday's meeting that development assistance will be accelerated, especially regarding the amounts that have been already earmarked, which are more than $3 billion.

Gulf countries met recently in Riyadh and agreed on several issues, including providing urgent support to the Yemeni economy to enable the government to deal with the major deficit in state budget and provide essential services.

    It was said that the parliament demands an apology from Basandowa for not attending the presidency headquarters. However, they demand nothing from Saleh and his supporters, and we only hear nonsense in this regard. Anyway, after the removal of the head of corruption, we would like to say that the head of treachery will be cut off, because the land of the happy Yemen will always have a strong hand that can remove the evil.
