 The internationally recognized Yemeni government of Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the Transitional Political Council of the South (STC) reportedly reached an agreement to implement the political side of the Riyadh Agreement on July 26.

The STC and Hadi’s government resumed negotiations to implement the Riyadh Agreement in early July, according to local media.

On Sunday, the ambassadors of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council urged the Yemeni legitimacy to implement the Riyadh Agreement and expressed hope for progress in the ongoing negotiations with the negotiation team of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia hosted indirect talks last November between Yemen's government and STC, resulting in an agreement between the two sides, officially called the “Riyadh Agreement”.

The deal stipulates forming a 24-strong government equally composed from Yemen’s southern and northern provinces, including appointing a governor and director of security forces in southern Yemen’s Aden governorate. The deal also grants the STC legitimacy as a representative of the southern cause in international forums.
