"During this visit of several days, Arab and his Saudi counterpart Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, will preside over the work of the joint Saudi-Yemeni commission charged with taking the necessary measures to putting into practice the agreement" which was signed on June 12th in Jeddah, an official source said in Riyadh.
