AMBASSADOR MEETS WITH SENATOR NOEL KINSELLA, SPEAKER OF THE SENATE
The opportunity for the Ambassador to meet with Yemen’s good friend and Speaker of the Senate, the Honourable Noel Kinsella is always a most welcome occasion. Such an opportunity presented itself for Ambassador Bahah to renew old acquaintances on October 6th, following a very busy summer and fall return to Parliament.
They discussed the tragic death of the Senator’s old friend and counterpart in Yemen, , HE Abdul Aziz Abdul Ghani, the Speaker of the Shoora Council who was killed in an explosion at the Presidential Palace in Sana’a during the summer. They reminisced about the productive and pleasant times that they had spent together in Canada and in Yemen.
Ambassador Bahah and the Senator, who has been a trusted and loyal supporter of Yemen for many years, spoke of the current challenges that the country and its people face, as well as the many efforts underway to provide solutions that would enable the country to enjoy a democratic and productive future.
