SANAA May 19 Gulf Arab foreign ministers will
meet in an extraordinary session in the coming days to discuss
Yemen after a Gulf-brokered near deal on a transition of power
for their poorer neighbour fell through for a second time, a
Yemeni opposition official said.
"The Cooperation Council informed us of a meeting of Gulf
foreign ministers that will be devoted to discussing the special
Yemen initiative," Mohammed Basindwa, an opposition figure
tipped as a possible interim prime minister, said on Thursday.
He said the meeting could take place as early as Saturday in
Riyadh, although Gulf officials could not immediately confirm
