British ambassador to Yemen Tim Torlot said Wednesday that there are no financial aids proposed for the Yemeni government in the coming international conference on Yemen.

The London conference called by Prime Minister Gordon Brown is to be an assessment of the donor conference held in London in 2006, Torlot said.

The British diplomat said the London-hosted international conference will analyze challenges the Yemeni government is facing and discuss means on how to help Yemen to tackle extremism.

Torlot stressed the importance of preserving the unity, security and stability of Yemen. "The interests of Yemen and Britain can only be served in cooperation with a united Yemen," he said.

According to British media, the United States and European Union had expressed their support for the Jan. 28 meeting, and Brown intended to attract Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states to attend.
