SANAA - Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh called on Sunday for dialogue with his opponents during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan to help resolve a crisis over demands for his removal which has paralyzed Yemen and confounded efforts at mediation.

The opposition has previously rejected invitations to negotiate, saying talks can only take place after Saleh signs a Gulf Arab plan to ease him out of power after 33 years in office.

"There is no alternative to dialogue which sets out from national and constitutional principles," said Saleh in a statement issued for Ramadan and carried by the state news agency Saba.
