 The Southern Transitional Council (STC) has welcomed on Monday, the US decision to designate the Iranian-backed Houthi putschist militia as a foreign terrorist organization.

The STC spokesman, Abdullah Al Kathiri said in his statement that such move will put an end to the practices of the Houthis and the other extremist terrorist groups.

Al Kathiri reiterated the STC's support for the fight against terror and its commitment to a comprehensive peace process enabling the Southerners to exercise their right to self-determination.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the Congress would be notified of his intent to designate pro-Iran Houthi militia as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and also his intent to designate three of the militia’s leaders; Abdul Malik al-Houthi, Abd al-Khaliq Badr al-Din al-Houthi, and Abdullah Yahya al Hakim as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs).
