Yemen's Foreign Minister Abu Bakr Al-Qirbi has affirmed that al-Qaeda will not be engaged in any dialogue but after it renounces violence.
In an interview with the Kuwaiti Alsyasya Newspaper, he asserted that the Yemeni government has no negotiations with al-Qaeda, pointing out that the government follows up the case of the Saudi diplomat, Abdullah Al-Khalidi.
He cited that Yemen needs urgent aids and international support in this critical transitional stage, pointing out that the Yemeni army could dislodge al-Qaeda militants from Abyan and only some elements are still hidden.
Yemen is preparing to hold an inclusive dialogue conference in next October for which all factions were called to participate.
He indicated that all Yemeni factions expressed its acceptance to participate in the national dialogue conference except the former president Ali Salem Al-Beedh.
He admitted that US drones are used in attacking al-Qaeda strongholds when the Yemeni army fails to reach them, stressing that al-Qaeda militants will not achieve any success in Yemen.
"They only shed blood in Iraq, Pakistan and Somali, and achieve no victories in these states" he added.
Meanwhile, Al-Qirbi stressed that the recent visit of President Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi to Qatar aimed at strengthening mutual relations and increasing cooperation between Yemen and Qatar.
He revealed that Hadi will visit the United States in the last quarter of the current year.
Meanwhile, he cited that he conveyed several letters to Iran in which Iran was demanded to end its interventions in Yemen's affairs.
