"The military and security institution has made an advanced level in the qualitative construction process during the past years, particularly in 2010", said Saleh.
He pointed out that the military and security institution is targeted by terrorist elements, especially al-Qaeda and outlaws.
This institution should be protected and its officers and soldiers should be preserved through providing it with armored and modern equipments, he added.
"This institution, which its staffs have sacrificed since the revolution up to day, still performs its national duty loyally", said Saleh.
This institution is not aspiring for illegal ambitions through chaos and sit-ins and disrupting security and public order and hindering investments and inflating unemployment to reach power, he added.
President Saleh called on the political forces to return to dialogue before chaos in the interest of the homeland and not to sabotage.
"We said the presidential term is five years for two non-renewable rounds. Let us deliberate power peacefully and not by chaos. Yemen is not Tunisia", Saleh said.

He called on the political forces to participate in the elections and constitutional amendments, with continued dialogue on the points of disagreement.
Saleh warned against the creative chaos promoted by leaders of the joint meeting parties (JMPs).
"I will ask pardon of Yemeni people, if I have made a mistake or failed in my duty", said Saleh.

There are saboteurs in Lahj, Aden and Abyan provinces, but they do not represent the people in these provinces, because the Yemeni people everywhere with the unity, he added.
