The Southern Transitional Council announced that the members of its “Riyadh Agreement” delegation will soon travel to Saudi Arabia to resume talks on completing the implementation of the agreement.

The transitional delegation’s departure to Riyadh coincides with a fierce campaign of lies by the Brotherhood [Islah Party] and the Houthi against the coalition countries and Saudi Arabia in particular, in an effort to confuse the Kingdom’s efforts to revive the “Riyadh Agreement” and complete the implementation of the rest of its provisions towards ending the coup.
A campaign, although targeted by the Brotherhood, was blatant blackmail and waged by the Houthi militia as part of its war, yet it reaffirms the extent of coordination between the two [...] groups to bury the “Riyadh Agreement” as the key to the solution to confront Iran’s project and the suspicious plans, according to observers.

In a statement today, Thursday, the transitional said that the council’s president, Aidaroos Al-Zubaidi, met with the head and members of the council’s delegation in the Riyadh Agreement, which is scheduled to go to Riyadh, in response to the Kingdom’s call to sponsor the agreement signed between the transitional and legality.

The statement quoted Al-Zubaidi as urging the STC delegation to “make more efforts to conduct the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement during the upcoming negotiations to discuss completing the implementation of the remaining provisions under the supervision of the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen.”
Al-Zubaidi stressed, “The Transitional Council’s keenness to make the” Riyadh Agreement “succeed, as it is the safe passage for all to get out of the complex situation in the liberated areas and unite efforts to confront the Iranian project in the region.

For his part, the Yemeni Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed bin Mubarak, stressed the importance of implementing the Riyadh Agreement and unifying the security and military institutions in the interest of the Yemeni people.

This came during Ben Mubarak’s meeting with Gregory Karasinot, Chairman of the International Affairs Committee of the Russian Federation, in Moscow, according to the official “Saba” agency.

The Yemeni minister said that the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement enables the government formed under the agreement to carry out its tasks, provide public services, address the economic situation and normalize life and general conditions in all liberated areas.

The anticipated negotiations to complete the implementation of the Riyadh agreement come after shuttling rounds by the UN and US envoys to Yemen to discuss a UN proposal that includes stopping the Houthi attack on the Marib governorate, a comprehensive ceasefire, sea and air measures, and reviving the political process.

However, despite the “international momentum” in support of the political settlement, observers confirmed the lack of seriousness of the Houthi militia and the Brotherhood, who escalated their humanitarian crimes and [..] attacks on the ground in the south and north.

The Houthi militia also continues its military attack on Marib, targeting civilians in Yemen and neighboring countries with missiles or drones, as well as attacks by booby-trapped boats and the deployment of sea mines to threaten navigation.

The Riyadh Agreement was signed on November 5, 2019, to end events in the temporary capital, Aden, and to unify all the components under the banner of legitimacy, especially after the formation of a government of national competencies in which the STC participates for the first time.
The agreement, which was signed between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council, took place in the presence of Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Saudi Arabia, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
