Saleh gets telephone call from U.S. President Barack Obama

SANA'A, Dec. 17 (Saba) – President Ali Abdullah Saleh received on Thursday a telephone call from U.S. President Barack Obama.

The two leaders discussed the bilateral relationship and mutual cooperation on all fronts.

Congratulating Saleh upon the new Hijri Year, Obama praised Yemen's efforts in the fight on terrorism, particularly, Thursday's raids in which dozens of al Qaeda suspects were killed and arrested.

We congratulate Yemen on the successful terror raids that came to show Yemen's determination to face the threat of Osama's Bin Laden Global Terrorist Network of al Qaeda, he said.

The U.S. will continue to support Yemen logistically and in the developmental, political and security areas, Obama assured Saleh.

"We assure Yemen that the U.S. is committed to boost mutual cooperation with it and urge donors to provide more support to the country to face all challenges."

The U.S. is well aware about Yemen's concern about the north-based insurgency and reiterates its full support for Yemen's unity and stability, he said.

President Saleh, for his part, thanked his U.S. counterpart on his country's efforts supporting the development and stability in Yemen, hailing the level of mutual cooperation between the two friend states.

He also affirmed Yemen will continue to fight terrorists and those trying to destabilize the country in the best of its own and in the best of the whole region and the world.
