Nations tie Yemen aid to IMF Program

Senior diplomats from 20 nations met in London to decide conditions for financial and security aid to Yemen. The aim is that it will result in a ‘political and economic overhaul’ by the San’a governement.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the military and economic efforts as interdependent. "We look to Yemen to enact reforms and continue to combat corruption and improve the country’s investment and business climate," she told the conference. "And if conflict and violence go unaddressed, they will undermine the political reform and reconciliation that are essential to Yemen’s progress."
