U.S. urging negotiated Yemen transition : Pentagon

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is urging for a negotiated transition in Yemen “as quickly as possible,” Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said, as he condemned ongoing violence that killed three more people on Tuesday.

“Obviously the situation right now is a difficult one. The longer it festers, the more difficult it becomes,” Morrell told reporters. “That is why this government has been urging a negotiated transition as quickly as possible.”
