Almotamar.net - Delegation of the General People's Congress (GPC) ruling Party in Yemen has on Tuesday discussed in the Syrian city of Latakia with leaderships of the Syrian Arab Ba'th Socialist party ways of developing relations between the two parties in both countries.
That came in a meeting of the GPC delegation led by Assistant Secretary General Sheikh Sultan al-Barakani with Dr Farouq Budaiwi, Secretary General of Latakia branch of the Ba'th party where the two sides reviewed situations and developments in the region and efforts of the two countries for consolidation of the Arab solidarity and enhancement of Arab joint action.
The two sides also affirmed the importance of cooperation and consultation in organisation and ideological questions and the mutual benefit from the different experiments in areas of political, social and economic work.
The GPV delegation visiting Latakia placed a wreath at the tomb of late Syrian President Hafiz al-Assad.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
