Ahmadinejad seeks warmer ties with Yemen

Yemen’s president received a letter from his Iranian counterpart on Wednesday seeking to strengthen ties undermined by alleged Iranian support for a rebellion in the Arabian Peninsual country’s north.

In the letter, delivered by Iranian Vice President Hamid Baghaei, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated his country’s “concern and will to develop relations and promote cooperation in various fields,” state news agency Saba.net reported.

In a reply, Yemen’s Ali Abdullah Saleh called for “strengthening relations with Iran … to serve the common interests” of both countries. – Khaleejtimes
