Washington, DC
April 7, 2012


The United States welcomes President Abdo Rabo Mansour Hadi's announcement of civilian and military personnel transfers as part of the ongoing political transition in Yemen. The changes signify the National Consensus Government's commitment to fulfilling the aspirations of the Yemeni people and restoring stability to the country. In spite of those who seek to derail the transition, President Hadi has demonstrated strong leadership by steadfastly implementing the agreed-upon political settlement. We join the diplomatic corps in Sana'a in urging all parties to cooperate fully with the presidential decree so that Yemen may continue to pursue a peaceful and orderly transition.
