RIYADH, July 10 (Saba)- President Ali Abdullah Saleh met on Sunday at the Saudi military hospital in Riyadh John Brennan, US Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.

President Obama affirmed his country’s support to Yemen’s unity, security and stability and its readiness to assist Yemen in the fields of economy and development as well as Yemen's efforts in the fight against terrorism.

In his turn, President Saleh thanked President Obama for his good and sincere feelings and for the US support to Yemen’s unity, security and stability.

He confirmed that Yemen needs to be supported and assisted to promote economic and development fields so as to reduce poverty and unemployment, which represent a fertile environment of terrorism. Saleh pointed out that Yemen has made considerable progress in the fight against terrorism.

He praised efforts made by the Gulf Cooperation Council led by Saudi Arabia, as well as the United States and the European Union in addressing the political crisis in Yemen, pointing out that a peaceful transfer of power in Yemen must be within the framework of democracy and the constitution.
