Malaysia's Economic Developments Become Yemen's 'Kiblat'

Yaman said he was impressed with Malaysia's economic development and wanted to emulate it, said Yemen's Ambassador to Malaysia Abdullah Muhammad al-Montser.

As reported Malaysia National News Agency NamedPrime Minister Muhammad Salem Basindwa specifically invited former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Muhammad who was regarded as "the architect and brain behind the economic miracle of Malaysia" to Sana'a for discussion.

Abdullah said Yemen was amazed by Malaysia's success in all fields and believed that all countries in the Middle East had the same view.

"We all consider Malaysia as a Model of Progressive Islamic State and very respectful of Mahathir for his contribution in bringing Malaysia to that direction today," added Abdullah.

He hoped Mahathir's further visit would help boost trade, culture and economy between Malaysia and Yemen.
