President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi met with American Ambassador to Yemen Gerald M. Feierstein on Saturday in Sana’a. They discussed new developments in political issues connected with the ongoing implementation of the gulf initiative. The Saba News Agency has stated that Hadi spoke with the ambassador about issues and circumstances that have to potential to obstruct the gulf initiative’s progress.
Also discussed were ways to overcome the current challenges and difficulties facing Yemen. According to the agency, the American ambassador confirmed the international community’s cooperation with Yemen and paid close attention to the circumstances surrounding the successful implementation of the gulf initiative, in a manner which would aid the nation’s overall safety and stability.
Feierstein added that the latter aim comprised one of the U.N. mission’s priorities. The international community’s role in achieving a successful transitional period according to Yemen’s needs was also discussed.
The United States and the European Union – along with involved Gulf nations – are closely monitoring the initiative’s application and progress, which earlier in the year resulted in the resignation of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
The United States is directly involved in carrying out military operations against terrorists in Yemen, and is considered to be the most active foreign nation doing so in Yemen in this regard.
