Yemen: The Republic of Yemen (ﺍﻟﺠﻤﻬﻮﺭﯾّﺔ اليمنية) in the Arabian Peninsula in Southwest Asia was between 2200 BC and the 6th century AD part of several kingdoms like the Sabaean one. Islamic caliphs began in the 7th century to control the area. North Yemen became part of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century. From 1839 until 1967, the British occupied the port of Aden and established it as a colony. The two countries were formally united as the Republic of Yemen on May 22, 1990. It is bordering the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden, and Red Sea.
