Amid popular protests against the 32-year rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, the United States has expressed support for the Yemeni president.
US Ambassador to Yemen Gerald M. Feierstein said on Saturday that, "We consider this (the popular uprising) to be dangerous. We consider this not to be in the interest of the Yemeni people,” AFP quoted him as saying.
"We oppose simply saying that Ali Abdullah Saleh should go without saying anything about what you think should happen next,” he added.'
