WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama's top counter-terrorism aide urged Yemen's ruling party on Saturday to cooperate with the opposition after the vice president called presidential elections for Feb. 21.

The White House said John Brennan telephoned Vice President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to "commend" him for announcing the date of the election, struck under a deal to end violent protests against the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

"It is critically important for the ruling party and the opposition to work together in the weeks and months ahead and to devote themselves fully to the implementation of the agreement," the White House said in a statement about the call.

Washington worries al-Qaida militants may seek to exploit instability in Yemen to strengthen their network in the country and launch attacks against the United States.
