Delivering a speech at the beginning of the organisation, Al-Akram extended her best wishes to students on their academic and social endeavours and thanked them for maintaining Yemeni culture even though they are far away from their motherland. Mohammed Al-Hamed, who participated in the event representing the Embassy of Yemen in Ankara, also delivered a speech in which he thanked EMU and Yemen night for their hospitality. Al-Hamed also added that Yemeni students conveyed to him their pleasure and satisfaction both in studying in EMU and living in the TRNC.
