Yemeni Vice President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi met with Chinese and Russian ambassadors in Sanaa on Saturday, briefing the developments of the country's political crisis and the health condition of the wounded president being treated in the Saudi capital, official Saba news agency reported.

During the meeting, Chinese ambassador Liu Denglin and Russian ambassador Sergei Kozlov condemned the attack against Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, reaffirming their governments' stances to support the unity, security and stability of Yemen.

On his part, the acting president Hadi reviewed the latest developments in the Yemeni political arena between the ruling party and the opposition since President Saleh was hospitalized to Riyadh for treatment following an assassination attack on his Presidential Palace on June 3.

Hadi reassured that Saleh's health condition is improving and he will come back to his post in Sanaa very soon.

He also briefed the results of his meeting with the opposition- backed protesters, who called for forming an interim ruling council, adding that the top priority at present is to put the destabilized-hit security and economic situations back on track.
