Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, Mr. Ahmet Davutoğlu paid an official visit to Yemen on 20-21 October 2012. Foreign Minister Davutoğlu was received by Mr. Abdu Rabbu Mansour, the President of Yemen and Mr. Mohammed Salem Basendwah, Prime Minister of Yemen. He also met with Mr. Abu Bakr Abdullah Al-Qırbi, Foreign Minister of Yemen and some other senior officials. On the occasion of the visit, a delegation consisting of approximately 150 businessmen also held contacts with the business community in Yemen.

Foreign Minister Davutoğlu stated that Turkey would like to further develop its economic cooperation with Yemen and the 100 million Dollar donation committed by Turkey to Yemen would be provided through bilateral projects.

As part of his contacts in Yemen, Foreign Minister Davutoğlu attended the Turkey-Yemen Business Forum with the accompanying business delegation. “Turkey wants to be among the top three countries with which Yemen trades” said Foreign Minister Davutoğlu pointing out that for the economic development of Yemen, Turkey was ready to cooperate in every field.
