UN envoy to Yemen, Gamal Benomar, arrived to Sana'a hoping to defuse the tension between factions 40 days before President Saleh will step down from power.
Benomar confirmed that the UN security council will meet on Yemen within two weeks to ensure that the power transfer takes place smoothly.
Strong differences arose between President Saleh and his expected successor VP AbduRubu Hadi this week, after Saleh felt his authorities were being restricted by the VP.
On Thursday, Benomar had a private one on one meeting with Hadi and both sides discussed ways to move the country forward.
Yemen is facing critical times as the first power transfer is more than three decades will take place next month.
Violence has decreased since the signing of the power transfer deal, but rising tension only proves that the crisis is far from over.
Random clashes still take place is Yemen's capital and security presence is still very low, giving crime a chance to increase.
