Nasser has noted out the historic bilateral relationships between India and Yemen and stressed the importance of improving it in a way that serves the aspirations and interests of the two countries peoples. For his part, Saed has reiterated his countryâ€™s stance that stands by Yemenâ€™s stability, security and unity and delivered to Nasser an invitation from his Indian counterpart to attend the International Defense Exhibition which will take place in India in March this year. In separate meetings, Nasser reviewed with the Cuban acting ambassador Oscar De Louis, and German ambassador Hollinger Green the bilateral military cooperation with their respective countries in terms of medical treatment. Nasser has also met in his office in Sanaâ€™a with the Dutch ambassador Leonie Kyulenyer. During the meeting, they discussed the current relationships between Yemenâ€™s and Netherlandsâ€™ armies especially in the Naval field, and how best bolster it and take it to new horizons. For her part, Leonie Kyulenyer said that she is relieved that the political scene in Yemen has made great progress and that tensions between conflicting parties are being increasingly eased. Nasser briefed the diplomats the latest developments in the Yemeni political and security arenas, the military committeeâ€™s mission, which is tasked with clearing armed manifestations from the central cities and restructuring the army units, and Yemenâ€™s role in fighting terrorism. Massive popular protests calling for an end to the authoritarian role of President Ali Abdullah Saleh combined by al-Qaeda insurgency in the south and Shiite rebellion in the far north has shaken Yemen to the bone, leaving thousands killed, pushing the economy to the brink of collapse and triggering a catastrophic humanitarian disaster. Saleh has signed a deal under which he relinquished power to Vic President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi, the consensus candidate for the upcoming presidential elections, in exchange for immunity from prosecution. Saleh has left Yemen for USA for further medical treatment of wounds and burns inflicted in an assassination attempt last year at the Presidential Palace, and he is most likely not going to come back home again.
