Abu Ras added that solution of problems and issues lies in focusing on the economic sides and cooperation among the various sides in the region.
In response to a question on the topics to be submitted by the session under the difficult economic situation at the world level in general and the Arab level in particular he said the session would open horizons of cooperation between Yemen and the region in general, particularly the Gulf countries as a preliminary step and Yemen has asked the ESCWWA to supply it with studies and expertise in areas that are considered as priorities.
