NEW YORK - Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani said on Wednesday that Gulf states hope to strike a deal with Yemen's president to step down.




"We hope that we will strike a deal," he told reporters on the sidelines of a Business and Investment in Qatar Forum in New York when asked if the Gulf Cooperation Council had reached such a pact for Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down.




"We (the council) have been meeting for the last few days in Riyadh and we're sending a proposal for him and the opposition and we hope a meeting will be held between his team and the opposition to try to find a way out of this problem," he said.
