Turkey will do its utmost to establish peace in Yemen: Turkish FM
Turkey is ready to exert all possible efforts to establish stability in Yemen, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview with the Turkish TRT-2 television channel.
"Yemen has great strategic importance and the collision in this country may spread to a larger area, as it of inter-religious nature," Davutoglu said." Turkey follows the developments in Yemen."
President Abdulla Gul had a telephone conversation with his Yemeni counterpart Ali Abdullah Saleh, he added.
On Tuesday, the U.S. embassy in Sane has resumed its work. The U.S government decided to close it due to incoming threats against foreign representatives from al-Qaeda.
Following the United States, France, Britain and Japan have suspended the work of their embassies in Yemen.
The situation in Yemen threatens the stability and security in the region and around the world, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at a joint press conference with the Qatari Foreign Minister.
Clinton's statements come amid the U.S. administration's decision to increase financial aid to Yemen by 56 percent, issuing $63 million in the 2010 fiscal year. The U.S. State Department spokesman also clarified that the publicized sum does not include the so-called "funds of 1206 - anti-terrorism provisions" already planned for the current year.
