 Member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), Vice-President of the National Assembly for Control and Inspection, Mr. Lufti Shatara affirmed that the STC is a true partner of the Arab Coalition and the international community in the war on terrorism.

The South will no longer be a base for Al Qaeda.. The Southern Armed Forces are the partners of the Coalition and the international community in the fight against terrorism, he tweeted.

Shatara also said that the STC will continue its war on terror with the whole world, first and foremost the United States of America.

Shatara's tweet was a reply to the Yemeni politician and former Foreign Minister, Khaled al-Yamani who posted on his official Twitter to mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Navy destroyer USS Cole in the southern port city of Aden.

Earlier, the STC official, Shatara said in an article published last year that Al Qaeda is a destructive lesion that has been for many years supported by parties that used religion as ideological cover and used their positions in power within Saleh's regime to arm terrorism and they are still doing the same within Hadi's political regime, launching campaign against the Arab Coalition, in particular the UAE under the guise of legitimacy.

This war on terror won't stop, especially in the South, until its goals are achieved. Protecting the security and stability of international shipping lines can not be left to a group that harms our political project and wants to undermine peace and stability in the region for its own political ends.

Shatara made it clear that "The South will no longer be a base for al Qaeda and/or a safe haven for political and military terrorism."
