The conference included an opening session in the presence of guests of honor, in which the national anthem of South Yemen was recited and a speech by STC President was broadcasted.

Aidrous Al-Zubaidi, in a video clip, congratulated for holding the conference and described it as "a democratic victory for Southern journalists and media professionals."

"The Southern media has made huge sacrifices in the battle to defend the homeland, its identity, and its freedom. You are facing a pivotal moment to arrange the southern press house," Al-Zubaidi added. 

The STC Spokesperson Ali Al-Kathiri considered the conference as "a new start for the press and media movement that was leading one in the Arab region."

The conference's organizing committee announced a plan to establish an independent press union for Southern journalists, as a main goal of the unprecedented conference.

It is scheduled to complete the work of the conference tomorrow and announce the establishment of an independent press union, after decades of what Southern journalists describe as "exclusion and marginalization."
