The Southern Transitional Council congratulates the success of the Gulf Cooperation Council summit, which was hosted by the city of Al-Ula in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and appreciates the role played by the leadership of the State of Kuwait towards achieving Gulf and Arab reconciliation, praising at the same time the pioneering role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the prestigious position it takes over in the region.
While the Council expresses its appreciation for all efforts aimed at strengthening joint Arab action, it affirms its support for the principle of peace, and supports any effective move that would contribute to protecting Arab national security and strengthening international peace and security.
The Southern Transitional Council stresses the need to make the most of the Gulf and Arab reconciliation to unify efforts to confront various security challenges, top among them the Iranian threats represented by the Houthi militia, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood, and the terrorist organizations associated with them, noting that peace and stability require a firm and joint position to face the projects of Iranian expansion, and the terrorist and extremist groups proliferating, in addition to the current economic and humanitarian challenges.
The Transitional Council hopes that this reconciliation will contribute in creating an enabling environment to address the economic and humanitarian crisis afflicting our people by supporting the government of power-sharing between the south and the north, starting to rebuild what the war has destroyed, and speeding up the implementation of the remaining provisions of the Riyadh Agreement, including the formation of the joint negotiating delegation between the two parties to the agreement, reaching to preparing the situation for the comprehensive political process sponsored by the United Nations, and the Transitional Council looks forward to a positive role towards the cause of the people of the South, respecting their legitimate will and aspirations, and their right for self-determination.
