"The older border between North and South -- created by the Ottoman and British empires in the early years of the twentieth century and technically abolished as a result of the union of 1990 -- nevertheless continues to be of some political importance.)
    • found: World encyc.("In 1990, after protracted negotiations, the two Yemens merged to form a single republic ... A coalition government emerged from the 1993 elections but increasing economic and political tensions between North and South led to civil war in 1994. The South's brief seccession from the union ended with victory for the Northern army." )
    • found: World book("Yemen (Aden) and Yemen (Sanaa). "In 1990 they officially merged and became the country of Yemen. But disagreements between supporters of the unified country's president who was from North Yemen and its vice president from South Yemen led to a civil war between northerners and southerners in May 1994.")
    • found: Wikipedia, Mar. 7, 2006(South Yemen. "The merger of the YAR and the PDRY in 1990 as the Republic of Yemen ended the term's association with an independent state but 'South Yemen' continues to be used to refer to the area of the former PDRY and its history and, anachronistically, to pre-1967 polities and events in the sane area (e.g., thge Federation of South Arabic, the Aden Protectorate, or the Colony of Aden.")
