 Ahead of the visit by the UN Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, Martin Griffiths to Aden, the member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), Vice-President of the National Assembly for Control and Inspection, Lufti Shatara affirmed that any political settlement does not base on the will of the people will never work out.

Griffiths arrived today in Aden after last week's deadly terrorist attack on the airport to meet the newly formed power-sharing government in a bid to push forward the peace efforts.

Last Monday, Shatara held a meeting in Aden with the director of the Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen (OSESGY), Marwan Al-Ali.

The two men reviewed the latest developments in the South, in particular in Aden following the terrorist attack on Aden international Airport upon the arrival of the newly formed cabinet members.

They also touched on the intra-Southern rapprochement at this important stage, stressing the need to accelerate the implementation of the Riyadh Agreement.

Shatara reiterated the continued insistence of the STC to implement the power-sharing agreement despite the fact that some parties try to destabilize security in the southern governorates, especially in Aden.
