Almotamar.net-saba - An American official voiced Wednesday confidence that February 21 would be a real moving towards comprehensive reforms and make the necessary changes the Yemeni people desires.
The statement made by US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman, the US envoy to Yemen, who arrived in Sana'a today [Wednesday] on an official visit to show the US support for Yemen.
During her meeting with Vice President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi, Ms. Sherman expressed the US and the international community's appreciation of the Vice President and political powers' efforts to carry out the Gulf initiative.
The US would be an effective partner with Yemen to overcome the crisis's aftermaths, she said, stressing that Yemen's security and unity are a strategic matter to the US.
The Vice President briefed the US official on the crisis's consequences in security, political and economic fields and its critical impacts on the stability and unity of the country.
He praised the American direct support to Yemen in this regard, pointing to the efforts of the US ambassador Gerald Feierstein, alongside with ambassadors of the UN Security Council permanent members, European Union and Gulf Cooperation Council, to save Yemen from separation and a civil war was about to be broken out.
Hadi and Ms. Sherman touched on several issues concerning the fight on terror, especially al-Qaeda, and the developments in Rad'a city which has been cleansed from terrorists
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
