A senior leader of the General People Congress Sultan al-Barakani has revealed that the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh will leave for the United States after Eid al-Adha, a religious Muslim holiday.
Al-Barakani who is among the most loyal politician to Saleh affirmed that Saleh will undergo two surgeries in the United States and back to Yemen, denying that Saleh will stay in any state for preeminent residency.
In remarks to the Kuwaiti al-Syasya newspaper, Al-Barakani strongly slammed those who ask to revoke Saleh's immunity, affirming that it is impossible to cancel it.
Yemeni senior politicians including Secretary General of the Yemeni Socialist Party Yaseen Saeed Noaman and Secretary General of the Nasserist Unionist People's Organization Sultan al-Atwani demanded Saleh, during the few past days, to leave Yemen.
Saleh is frequently charged with intervention in tasks of the interim government and seeking to disrupt its performances.
Meanwhile, the German Embassy in Yemen has denied reports that Germany accepted the hosting Saleh, the Akhbar Alyoum newspaper reported on Wednesday quoting a spokesman for the German Embassy in Sana'a.
"The position of Germany on this issue is firm...Germany has not decided to give Saleh a visa or to host him," the spokesman added.
Yemeni media sources said that President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi discussed the issue of Saleh's departure during his first overseas trip to Europe, the US and Saudi Arabia.
Saleh, who ruled Yemen for 33 years, stepped down in November under a power-transfer deal that was brokered by the GCC and backed by the West after the unrest.
