Yemen's Prime Minister Mohammed Basindwa has left Saudi Arabia with a promise of support. His country is seeking to end 10 months of turbulence by implementing a Gulf Arab peace plan.

Foreign Minister Abubakr al-Qirbi is accompanying Basindwa on his tour of Gulf Arab capitals. He says Saudi Arabia has not yet put a figure on the amount of aid it would give. Qirbi met Gulf Arab deputy finance ministers last month to discuss aid.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh has agreed to step aside as part of a plan to end deadly clashes between his supporters, and anti-government protesters and troops loyal to a dissident army general.

The Yemeni prime minister and foreign minister will meet other Gulf Arab leaders this week. They will discuss help for the impoverished state, which has become home to a deadly wing of al-Qaeda.
