Once in a blue moon we "hook up," and I'm usually the one to set the date up. We're friends on social media, but weeks -- even months -- can pass without our speaking to each other.

Saleh said the Gulf states must diversify their economies and "reduce dependence on oil". "Implementing these policies has become inevitable," Saleh told the meeting, which International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde was also attending. Forecasts indicate a healthy economic growth for the six nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) averaging 4.5 percent in 2014-2015, Saleh said.
