From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The People's Democratic Republic of Yemen — also referred to as Democratic Yemen, South Yemen, or Yemen (Aden)
was a socialist republic in the present-day southern and eastern Provinces of Yemen. It united with the Yemen Arab Republic, commonly known as North Yemen, on May 22, 1990 to form the current Republic of Yemen. However, the agreement did not go through as expected, thus resulting in the 1994 war between the two countries which led to the invasion of the South.
