 Member of the Presidency of the Southern Transitional Council, Lutfi Shatara deplored the low-level discussions held by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) regarding the situation in Yemen.

Shatara wrote on his Facebook timeline "I do regret that a British institute like RUSI, the world's oldest independent think tank on international defense and security, has fallen to such levels of superficial discussion over the situation in Yemen, instead of tackling the problem at its roots."

"Researcher Ali Noman Al-Masfari and I attended a two-hour symposium on Yemen in London, for the first time I felt that the situation in Yemen (North and South) is far more complicated than a debate at a center for studies." Shatara said.

Shatara made it clear that "the report of International Crisis Group, headquartered in Brussels, on the situation in Yemen, specifically the South, was more fair and logical, cause it based on the realities on the ground; the head of the group along with ICG researchers paid a field visit to Aden and met all the political and security parties and representatives of social figures too."

He concluding by saying that working on the ground always gives a true image of the situation.
