President Abdu Rabo Mansour Hadi discussed Tuesday with Obama's top counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan obstructions of Yemen's political settlement.
In a phone call, Brennan affirmed that the United States will support Yemen in implementing the GCC-crafted power transfer deal.
The state news agency (Saba) said that they also discussed priorities and results of the donor conference held in Riyadh on Tuesday as well as the imminent visit of Hadi to Washington in late September.
According to Saba, they reviewed the international counter-terrorism cooperation and attacks of al-Qaeda against yeomen.
Hadi appreciated the United States' interests on Yemen's developments, updates, its permanent support to Yemen and help it overcome its crisis. This call came two days after US drones killed about 13 civilians in Rada'a district of Al-Baida governorate.
The air-strike was condemned by political parties, civil society organizations and tribal leaders. It further called for apologizing for the civisms, compensate them and amend wrong policies that resulted in such crimes against civilians.
Local sources cited that tribal leaders and figures held a meeting on Monday to discuss strikes launched against their areas.
Many Al-Qaeda militants including senior leaders have been targeted by US drones in Yemeni southern and southeastern regions in the past months. However, US drones sometimes miss its target and kill civilians, tribal sources say.
Earlier this year, a group of militants occupied Rada and declared it as an Islamic emirate and they left later after tribal mediations managed to release Al-Qaeda prisoners.
