Yemen's Saleh 'welcomes' power sharing

2011-07-08 08:53
Sanaa - Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh said in a television interview broadcast on Thursday that he welcomed power sharing as long as it was within the country's constitutional framework.

Saleh, who had not been seen in public since an assassination attempt on him last month, showed signs of burns to his face and had heavily bandaged arms and hands in the pre-recorded interview on Yemen TV.

"We welcome the sharing within the framework of the constitution and in the framework of the law," Saleh said.

Saleh is recovering in Riyadh from a bomb attack at his compound.

Some diplomats have said there is a slim chance Saleh could return to Yemen, facing a severe political impasse after months of protests demanding his ouster.
