So, in this regards, I need a variable to proxy the country's foreign policy. Your contributions are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks

Yemen recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, on April 10. Half of all medical facilities in the country are not functioning, so it is not clear how much testing for the virus is available.
In the report https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200418-sitrep-89-covid-19.pdf?sfvrsn=3643dd38_2, covid 19 seems to low compared to other countries.
The country, already the poorest in the Middle East before its civil war started five years ago, is also badly positioned to treat victims of the respiratory virus, while protecting its health care workers.
"Yemen cannot face two fronts at the same time: a war and a pandemic. (See Margaret Besheer

Any persons who have knowledge about this may answer to help my some research student of Yemen.
#Khat (Catha edulis) is banned in many countries of the world, but it is still freely available on the streets of Yemen and East Africa. Do you support its ban in the latter countries? Any justification?
#Cathinone is a schedule I drug in #USA, #amphetamine is Schedule II. When you compare potency, amphetamine is more potent. Amphetamine is synthetic, but cathinone is unstable and degrades to less potent chemicals in a matter of few hours. Do you see the scheduling as #scientific or #political? Even #Britain has banned khat on political ground, when scientific information was against the ban.

It is important for researhers to write about new and up to date topics for example using technology in teaching. In Yemen such topic is difficult to be really tackled because even electricity and internet are not easily accessible.
China's global development has been slow down and thousands of citizens have died because of coronavirus. So coronavirus is the most dangerous threat for countries recent, and virüs is getting bigger.
Beside it civil-war in Middle East (Syria, Yemen and Libya) is going on Iranian-American rivalry is also possibile being a war. Regional wars have potential for being a global war.
So what do you think? Coronavirus or regional wars are more dangerous for the globe?
The fact that the US martyred Kasım Süleymani, one of Iran's most important commanders, points out that the balance and policies will change in the Middle East. Can Iran's attitude to terrorist organizations, which threaten Iran primarily, change? Can it damage the US policies in the Middle East? What kind of new policies can it pursue in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, where it is effective? What kind of new and more visible actions could he take in his interest in Israel? Would this powerful attack on Iran make his policies more acceptable in the Islamic world? Can there be a positive change in the perspectives of the states on the axis of Islam? Has Iran's style of administration been reinforced as a result of this attack?
Some papers (eg Saudi Epidemiology Bulletin 1995; WHO report 1995) report the presence of Aedes albopictus in Saudi Arabia, but there could be a mixing up with Aedes unilineatus. Can anybody confirm the presence of Aedes albopictus in Saudi Arabia and in Yemen? Alternatively, can anybody send some specimens that look like Aedes albopictus for morphological or molecular identification?
Hi everyone, We plan to conduct a study on knowledge and awareness about congenital cytomegalovirus among health workers in Yemen.

We from the third world fall under the many difficulties and obstacles that hinder our academic work and especially civil wars that do not end, for us the science of mathematics, is the lung from which we breathe and feel with our presence on the back of this world. My question is, are there any organizations that can help us technically and financially in our university, the University of Aden, in establishing and running the master's and doctorate programs in mathematics?
Recently I read an article, "A Tragic Educational Experience: Academic Injustice in Higher Education Institutions in Yemen" by Abdulghani Muthanna. It has led me to think that there could be similar situations through which some of us might have gone through. Yes, I also had experienced some kind of what is called 'academic injustice'. Please share yours.

I always read some online headlines in Arabic on an attractive issue and click the link and find no relation between the headline which comes to my mind and the news. They choose a headline to attract many readers and they do.
Let me give you an example to make the point clear.
I saw a link headlined "Obama is wearing a Yemeni dress" When I clicked the link, I found that the news is about "Mlaik Obama who is in Africa" and not about Barack Obama.
Another example is " Urgent News! the son of Saleh (the former president of Yemen) was killed". When I clicked the link, I found that the killed one is a son of another Saleh and not the son of president Saleh.
Here is the news in Arabic:
Today, after successful elections in Venezuela, boycotted by the US backed opposition, we are told that:
"The US vice-president Mike Pence, described the vote as a “sham” which was “neither free nor fair”, while in a separate statement, the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, said the US “will take swift economic and diplomatic actions to support the restoration of their democracy.”
Also today we are told that following the unilateral US tearing up of the international treaty with Iran :
"Mike Pompeo has threatened Iran with the “strongest sanctions in history” if it does not comply with a list of a dozen US demands. In a speech that attempted to lay out the Trump administration’s strategy on Iran after quitting the nuclear deal it agreed with other major powers in 2015, the secretary of state warned that the US would not just reimpose all the sanctions that were in place before the deal, but also pile additional punitive measures.
The Iranian regime should know this is just the beginning,” Pompeo said. The speech did not explicitly advocate regime change, but in remarks immediately afterwards Pompeo suggested that it would be up to the Iranian people to end the US pressure campaign by changing their own government.“I can’t put a timeline on it, but at the end of the day, the Iranian people [advised by the CIA] will decide the timeline,” Pompeo said at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank in Washington. “The Iranian people will get to make a choice about their leadership. If they make the decision quickly that will be wonderful. If they choose not to do so, we will stay hard at this until we achieve the outcomes that I set forth.”
Among the 12 conditions laid down by Pompeo were: demand Iran to give a full account of its alleged past work on nuclear weapons development; stop all uranium enrichment; halt launches of nuclear-capable ballistic missiles; end its support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad;(??) withdraw all forces under Iranian command from Syria; and end support for Houthi rebels in Yemen.
GOOD TO KNOW WE ARE IN SAFE AND SENSIBLE HANDS WHO KNOW HISTORY, DIPLOMACY AND CARE ABOUT WORLD PEACE!!

I am trying to investigate the potential problems of the UK embedding troops in foreign forces, especially US forces, in areas where the UK has not declared itself at war - such as Syria before the parliamentary vote or within US troops in Camp Lemonnier. Does anyone know any experts or work done on this?
I research the syntactic structure of Mehri language in Yemen, the minority language that related to the old Semitic languages.
