 Spokesman for the Southern Transitional Council, Nazar Haitham said that the council has placed high hopes on Saudi Arabia in ensuring the success of the Riyadh agreement.

During a telephone interview, Haitham told the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat that the the Riyadh agreement would lead to “weapons being directed towards the common enemy of all parties, which are the Iran-backed Houthi militias.”

He also hoped it would lead to a new phase of cooperation and partnership in all fields with Saudi Arabia.

The deal will also define the relationship between the government and STC in the upcoming phase in Yemen and until the goals of Operation Decisive Storm are achieved, then the Southerners will determine their political fate that meets the aspiration of all the people of the South, he remarked.

On the arrangements on the ground in Aden, he said Saudi Arabia has prepared security and military institutions.

“I believe affairs are more than excellent and we will remain optimistic as long as Saudi Arabia is leading efforts,” Haitham stressed.
