From the Indian side the meeting was presided by Sanjay Singh, Secretary (East), Ministry of External Affairs, while the Yemeni side was led by the Deputy Minister of Planning & International Cooperation, Omer Abdulaziz Abdulghani.

Highlights of the Meetings


Both the country India and Yemen, agreed to further strengthen the mutually beneficial relations, through mutually cooperative ventures in the areas of Education & Training, Culture, Health, Hydrocarbons, Agriculture, Fertilizers, Trade, Investment and Security.

Indio Yemen Relations


Indo-Yemeni relations date back to ancient times. The historical ties between India and Yemen are confirmed by the fact that even today there are about one hundred thousand persons of Yemeni origin in India in Andhra Pradesh and an equal number of people of Indian origin in Yemen, particularly in the South and the East of Yemen.

India was one of the first countries to recognise both the YAR after the 26th September, 1962 revolution and the People’s Republic of Southern Yemen after its formation on 29th November 1967.

The Indian mission in Sana’a was established in 1970. The visit of President Saleh to India in March 1983 to attend the Non-aligned summit and that of President Zail Singh to YAR and PDRY in October 1984 energised the relationship. In February 1993, official talks led to signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on periodical Foreign Office consultations between the Ministry of External Affairs of the Republic of India and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Yemen.
