Minister of Information: Riyadh Agreement to be signed on Tuesday
Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Eryani announced Friday evening that the signing of the Riyadh Agreement between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) will take place on Tuesday.
"The official signing ceremony of the Riyadh agreement will take place next Tuesday, November 5th," he said via his official Twitter account.
The minister added that the signing will be sponsored by King Salman bin Abdulaziz and done in the presence of President Abdu Rabbo Mansour Hadi and the leaders of the state, government, political parties, social figures, brothers and friends.
"This political presence confirms the keenness of the brothers in the kingdom and President Hadi to the participation of the various southern components and political elites of Yemen in order to unite the efforts of all Yemenis under the umbrella of constitutional legitimacy in the battle to restore the state and bring down the coup of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia," he said.
Saudi Arabia has sponsored consultations in recent days between the Yemeni government and representative of the STC to resolve the conflict that boiled over as a result of the UAE-backed takeover of Aden governorate on August 10.
