The Republic of Yemen National Day

The celebration of our National day is an auspicious occasion commemorating May 22nd, 1990, a date representing a significant turning point in Yemen’s history. Prior to 1990, Yemen was divided in two. In that year, the North, known as the Yemen Arab Republic, and the South, the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen, were reunited to form the Republic of Yemen, changing the course of our social and political history forever and launching us on our journey to becoming an emerging democracy.
