SANAA, Yemen, June 2 (UPI) -- Yemeni Prime Minister Mohamed Basindawa called on world powers to intervene and sanction those who impede Yemen's move toward democracy, officials said.
In a speech at the Partners Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations this week in Turkey, Basindawa said the international community must stand by the Yemeni people, the Yemen Post said Saturday.
Despite the signature of a power-transfer deal in November 2011. Yemen has been plagued by internal political conflicts jeopardizing its transition period with remnants of the regime refusing to comply with the directives of President Abdu Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
In its latest session on Yemen, the Security Council warned on Wednesday it would act against those who hinder the country's progress.
