The General Department for Foreign Affairs of the Southern Transitional Council affirms that all consultations related to the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement are conducted through high and responsible channels under the auspices of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
While the administration commends the efforts made by the brothers in the Arab Coalition, it affirms at the same time that the delegation of the Southern Transitional Council in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, has completed delivering all necessary plans to implement the mechanism to accelerate the Riyadh Agreement announced on July 29, 2020, including plans to separate the forces in Abyan to be transferred to the fronts, and the transfer of military forces to outside the capital Aden.
The General Administration of Foreign Affairs in the Council also expresses its deep regret for the irresponsible statements that are frequently made by some members of the caretaker government, bypassing their stipulated duties, in their continuing to try to shuffle the cards in order to thwart the efforts of the Arab coalition and thwart the efforts aimed at uniting the political and military ranks in the face of Houthi militias and terrorist groups.
The Southern Transitional Council calls on the Prime Minister-designate to fulfill the agreed obligations to support the governor of Aden the capital, to facilitate his tasks to alleviate the suffering of the citizens, especially with regard to the provision of public services. The Council also notes that obstructing the formation of the new government and the announced acceleration mechanism comes in the context of the policy of collective punishment against the southern governorates.
In response, the Southern Transitional Council calls on the countries of the Arab coalition led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which is the sponsor of the Riyadh agreement, to take a firm stance towards the parties obstructing the implementation of the agreement.
