In the meeting, Martin Griffith conveyed the condolences of the United Nations to the family of martyr Commander Munir Mahmoud Al-Mashali "Abu Al-Yamamah" and to the southern people, expressing his deep regret over the attack on Al-Gala'a camp, describing what happened as dangerous action.

For his part, President Al-Zubaidi stressed on the continuation of the southern forces in their campaigns to combat terrorism, and their efforts to establish security and stability in Aden the capital and the rest of the southern provinces.

President Al-Zubaidi called on the Special Envoy to contribute seriously to alleviate the suffering of the southern people who are subjected to terrorist and Houthi attacks in light of an unjust international silence.
