RIYADH - Yemen's Prime Minister
Mohammed Basindwa left Saudi Arabia on Tuesday with a promise of
support as his country seeks to end 10 months of turbulence by
implementing a Gulf Arab peace plan, but without a concrete
figure for any aid it would receive.
"Certainly we have had a concrete commitment from the
government of (King Abdullah) to provide Yemen
with the support
they feel is needed in this transitional period," said Foreign
Minister Abubakr al-Qirbi
, who is accompanying Basindwa on his
tour of Gulf Arab capitals.
Asked if Saudi Arabia
had put a figure on the amount of aid
it would give, he added: "Not yet, but I hope it will be soon."
Basindwa met Saudi King Abdullah on Monday.
