Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Yemen-style transfer of power is no longer suitable for situation in Syria, in a press conference upon his arrival in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Saturday, Xinhua reported.
"The Yemen-style transfer of power is no longer suitable to be implemented in Syria, and we call on Iran to use its powerful influence to halt the aggression on the Syrian people," Davutoglu told reporters in a joint press conference with his Yemeni counterpart Abu Bakr al-Qerbi.
Davutoglu's remarks came after meeting with Yemeni President Abd- Rabbu Mansour Hadi. He is scheduled to meet with other Yemeni officials during his two-day official visit to offer aid to the Yemeni interim government, according to Yemeni state Saba news agency. After months of mediation by the international community, Yemen saw a presidential election in February, when
Hadi was elected as the new president for two-year interim period. The power-transfer deal mediated by the Gulf states and backed by the United Nations Security Council ended a year-long of deadly street protests that forced former President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down and move power to Hadi.
Hadi has been working to reunite the divided army, tackle political, economic and security challenges, and launch a national dialogue to settle disputes among all rival forces under supervision of the international community.
