Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh rejected Saturday UN Security Council sanctions imposed on him for obstructing peace, and his party walked out of the newly formed cabinet.
The UN sanctions, including a visa ban and asset freezing, are "rejected," Saleh told members of his General People's Congress, a day after the US-proposed measures were adopted.
The GPC, meanwhile, said it was not consulted in forming the long-awaited cabinet, and urged party nominees to turn down their assigned ministries.
