The United States welcomed on Wednesday the agreement signed by Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh to hand over power to his deputy after months of protests that pushed the country to the brink of civil war.

"The United States applauds the Yemeni government and the opposition for agreeing to a peaceful and orderly transition of power that is responsive to the aspirations of the Yemeni people," US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said.

Clinton urged Yemeni government to move "swiftly to implement the terms of the agreement" which was crafted by the Gulf Cooperation Council with support from UN, US and European diplomats.

"We look forward to strengthening our partnership with the Yemeni people and their new government as they address their political, economic, humanitarian and security challenges," Clinton said.
