LONDON - Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday Yemen's president should sign a transition of power deal "as soon as possible".

President Ali Abdullah Saleh said he was ready to sign such a deal on Wednesday within the framework of dialogue, but would fight those who threaten security and stability in the country which has seen protests calling for him to stand down.

He also said he does not take orders from any foreign powers.

"He should sign the agreement, he has been on the brink of doing so for some time," Hague told Sky News.
