    Yemen, India to sign anti-terrorism, piracy cooperation agreements - People's Daily Online

    Yemen and India are preparing to sign several security cooperation agreements on combating terrorism and piracy, Yemeni state-run Saba news agency reported Saturday.

    "The agreements are in areas of exchanging security expertise in combating terrorism and piracy," Saba quoted Yemeni Interior Minister Mutahar al-Masri as saying.

    Al-Masri made the statement during a meeting with Indian ambassador to Yemen Ausaf Sayeed, during which they reviewed a series of security issues, particularly in the area of counterterrorism.

    Yemen was rattled by six-month-long protests across the country calling for the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, which triggered security and economic crises.

    The cash-stripped Sanaa government has waging fierce battles against militants of the al-Qaida wing in the southern province of Abyan, which overlooks one of the world's busiest shipping lane in the Gulf of Aden.

    The Indian ambassador asserted his government's support to the unity and stability of Yemen, Saba added.
