Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh is willing to step down by the end of the year as part of a constitutional transfer of power, The Associated Press quoted spokesman Ahmed al-Sufi as saying on Tuesday.

According to the report, Saleh informed Yemeni officials and military commanders of his intentions on Monday.

Sufi reportedly added that Saleh vowed never to hand over power to the military.

Saleh had rejected previous calls from the opposition to step down by year's end.
