The Kuwaiti Embassy in Sana'a donated over 2,000 books to Sana'a University. The same quantity was gifted to Studies and Research Center headed by Dr. Abdul Aziz Al-Maqaleh.

These books are among Kuwait University's publications and they are issued by its Publication and Translation Committee.  They include as well specialized journals and regular publications.

Kuwaiti Ambassador to Yemen Salem Al-Zamnan pointed out that the embassy seeks to provide Sana'a University with useful books and sources that can be of true benefit to students.

Al-Zamnan also added that preparations, through collaboration with Sana'a University officials, are underway to inaugurate Kuwait State's Wing at the University's Central Library. 

This comes as Yemen's bilateral relations with Kuwait have developed after a series of high ranking officials' visits exchanged by both countries.

Second Gulf War that took place during the early 1990s affected badly the brotherly relations between Yemen and Kuwait and the country's stance was considered then to be passive and pro-Iraq.

Yemen's relations with other Gulf countries got tensed too and this caused these countries to send over one million of Yemeni workers and expatriates home, causing huge confusion and bigger demand on the country's infra-structure. 

Kuwaiti government used to be one of Yemen's key supporters during the late 1970s and 1980s  and it constructed several schools, hospitals and state institutions including Sana'a University's Faculty of Medicine.
