§ 46. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Lord Privy Seal what negotiations have taken place during the last six months with regard to relations between the United Kingdom and the Yemen and the settlement of outstanding disputes between them; and what recent incidents have taken place on the frontier.
§ Mr. Heath
No formal negotiations have been necessary during the past six months. Her Majesty's chargé d'affaires at Taiz continues to be in constant touch with the Yemeni authorities. In addition,36W the former Governor of Aden had informal talks with the Crown Prince and Yemeni officials on Anglo-Yemeni relations during a private visit to the Yemen in June.
There have been only minor incidents on the frontier, arising from inter-tribal disputes. Local frontier meetings have been able to discuss these and have settled most of them.
