Minister of Information: Officially sign riyadh agreement within the next two days
Yemeni Information Minister Moamer al-Iryani said Saturday that the signing of the Riyadh agreement between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) will take place within the next two days.
"After the initials of the Riyadh agreement are initialed, the agreement will be formally signed within two days," al-Iriani said in a series of tweets on his Twitter account.
"Everyone is expected to address the event positively, away from political disputes, as a pivotal and important step to unite the ranks and guide all efforts in the battle to get rid of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia," the minister said.
He hailed what he described as the president's role in reaching an agreement that preserves the unity, sovereignty, security, stability and territorial integrity of Yemen and strengthens the state's ability to confront the Iranian-backed Houthi militia.
"The agreement as finalized unites Yemenis' efforts to counter the Houthi coup within the framework of constitutional legitimacy, preserves national principles, adheres to the three terms of reference and strengthens the presence of state institutions in the liberated provinces," he said.
Saudi Arabia has been sponsoring a dialogue between the legitimate government and the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council to end the crisis that followed the transitional takeover of Yemen's interim capital, Aden, on August 10.
