QUESTION: A spokesman for President Saleh of Yemen said today that he will be returning to Sana’a soon. Does that mean that Jon Brennan’s efforts to persuade him to stay in Saudi Arabia and to sign a deal has failed?
MR. CARNEY: Well, again, I think -- I don't have a comment on what he said he was going to do. Our position on Yemen and the need for a transition there hasn’t changed.
QUESTION: He's returning, and you wanted him to sign a deal.
MR. CARNEY: Well, we continue to believe that he should honor the obligations he made and the promises he made to begin that transition.
Carney last mentioned Yemen on June 17th.
