Yemen has asked Turkey to mediate its political crisis, including the issue of power transition, local press said Tuesday.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh made the appeal in a letter personally conveyed by his deputy Abdal-Rab Mansur Al-Hadii to the Turkish government, a source familiar with the issue was quoted as saying.

On the same day, the Sanaa-based Yemen Times carried an interview with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who didn't mention the letter, but called on Yemenis to refrain from violence.
