Yemen minister hopes for transition deal

Abubakr al-Qirbi says he hopes for a deal on a transition of power.

    Yemeni Foreign Minister Abubakr al-Qirbi said he hopes for a deal on a transition of power in Yemen on Saturday, and that the time frame of a transition by President Ali Abdullah Saleh could be negotiated.

    "I hope it will be today, before tomorrow," Qirbi, who is serving as caretaker foreign minister, told Reuters.

    "I think the time period is something that can be negotiated. It shouldn't be really an obstacle to reach an agreement," Qirbi said.
