Yemen's foreign minister said Wednesday that his country opposes any direct intervention by US or other foreign troops in the fight against al-Qaida. Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi told The Associated Press in an interview that "there is a lot of sensitivity about foreign troops coming to Yemeni territory." The United States has ramped up its counterterrorism aid to Yemen in an intensified campaign to uproot al-Qaida's offshoot in Yemen, which Washington warns has become a "global" threat. US military personnel have already been on the ground training Yemeni security forces in the fight, and intelligence cooperation has increased. Al-Qirbi said Yemen's government would welcome more military trainers, "but not in any other capacity."
