Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh met with the United Nations envoy to Yemen Jamal bin Omar in the capital Sanaa Tuesday to discuss solutions to the political crisis in the country, state-run Saba news agency reported.

Saleh was briefed about the results of meetings that Omar had conducted with leaders of the opposition Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) regarding the prolonged political stalemate.

During the meeting, the envoy showed the UN's readiness to help resolve the political deadlock between Saleh and the JMP, stressing that the crisis should be solved peacefully without any foreign interference in the Yemeni internal affairs.

Omar urged all Yemeni political parties to sit down at the table of dialogue to directly negotiate the possible solutions to end the crisis and stave off chaos in Yemen, according to Saba.

The impoverished Arab country witnessed Tuesday escalating marches across major provinces to repeat the three-month-long demands for an immediate end to the 33-year rule of Saleh.
