DAMASCUS, Nov. 25 (Saba) – Secretary General of Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union AIPU Nur al Din Boushkoug praised on Thursday great wisdom of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in addressing and overcoming challenges facing Yemen. The praise was made as he met with Yemen's ambassador to Syria Abdul Wahab Tawaf. He also hailed the success on organizing the 20th Gulf football cup being held in Aden and Abyan provinces, saying the championship showed the awareness and interest of the Yemeni people in unity, security and stability. The media campaign targeting Yemen can do nothing as the country is determined to develop itself and boost its economy, he said. For his part, Tawaf said the situation in Yemen is good and that media try to distort the country's image to strike tourism and foreign investments in it. The meeting discussed the mutual cooperation between Yemen and the union in all areas. FRSaba
