The United States welcomes the initiative of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to address the challenging political situation in Yemen. We strongly encourage all sides to engage in this urgently needed dialogue to reach a solution supported by the Yemeni people. President Saleh has publicly expressed his willingness to engage in a peaceful transition of power; the timing and form of this transition should be identified through negotiation and begin soon. To succeed, all parties must participate in a process that addresses the legitimate concerns of the Yemeni people, including their political and economic aspirations.
