In mid-June, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and Saudi Crown Prince Andullah Bin Abd al-Aziz signed a treaty on border demarcation between the two states. The two nations had been working since 1995 to define their 2,500-kilometer joint border. Both sides have since pulled back armed forces to a certain distance from the border. The new agreement will likely strengthen relations in all fields between the neighbouring states and in the future, create the possibility of Yemen joining the Gulf Cooperation Council.
