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.
