Mohsin Ahmad Alaini (Arabic: محسن أحمد العيني‎‎) (born 1932) served as the Prime Minister of the Yemen Arab Republic[1] five times between 1967 and 1975.

Mohsin Alaini was the first Foreign Minister of the Yemen Arab Republic.[2] He consequently served four terms as Prime Minister under President Abdul Rahman al-Iryani. They were:

  3. 5 February 1970 to 26 February 1971
  4. 18 September 1971 to 30 December 1972

The fifth and final term was served under Ibrahim al-Hamdi. It was from 22 June 1974 to 16 January 1975.

Between and after these terms he was sent as ambassador to the United Nations, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and finally to the United States (until 1997). Back in Yemen he was nominated for the Shura council of elder statesmen.
