 The president of the Southern Transitional Council, Aidroos Qassem al-Zubaidi said that holding parliamentary sessions is not allowed in Aden, warning the legitimate government of the grievous consequences if it insists to hold it in Aden.

In an interview with the Russian news channel, Rusiya Al-Yaum on Friday, the leader of the Southern Transitional Council said that the situation in Aden is stable, but media outlets exaggerate any problem occurs in the city.

Al-Zubaidi touched on the battle for Hodeidah, saying that the United Nations gave the pro-Iran Houthi rebels the opportunity to get their breath back as the battle was about to end within days.

He said that the 2015 war was a cumulative process of the 1994 occupation, pointing out that the Houthis before taking control of the North, used to say that they are in favor of the Southerners' demands, but contrary to what they said, they repeated the mistake of Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Al-Zubaidi made it clear that the strategic difference between the STC and President Hadi is the Brotherhood's involvement in government, in particular Islah Party, the main cause of scourge and problems in the North and South, adding that the Muslim Brotherhood-linked party has failed on the battle fronts in the North and exported terrorism to the South through al-Qaeda terrorist groups.

Al-Zubaidi told Rusiya Al-Yaum that those who participated in the Sanaa dialogue in 2013, did not represent all the southern demands. However, they withdrew when they felt the plot.

Al-Zubaidi confirmed that the Southern Transitional Council has engaged in dialogue with all the southern factions (parties, civil society organizations, Hirak movement, syndicates and independent personalities among others), adding "we are still open to dialogue."
