‘Riyadh Agreement’ Unites Yemenis Against Militias

The “Riyadh Agreement” expected to be signed soon between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) aims mainly to unite Yemenis against Houthi militias, two political analysts told Asharq Al-Awsat on Thursday.

They said an announcement on a final agreement in indirect talks between the government and the STC under the auspices of Saudi Arabia is expected to have positive effects on civilians and fighters on Yemeni fronts.

“The Riyadh agreement should unite the Yemenis and achieve stability in Aden,” Dr. Mohamed Saadi, a political researcher, told Asharq Al-Awsat.

He said the agreement would also end chaos and use all military powers against Houthis.

“In case a national front is established to set the targets of the upcoming phase in line with the objectives of the Coalition to Fight Legitimacy in Yemen, then the legitimate government would be able to achieve its targets with the help of the STC,” Saadi said.

There have been ongoing talks in the Saudi Red Sea city of Jeddah to put an end to the differences between the Yemeni government and the STC amid guarantees on the implementation of the agreement under the monitoring of a joint committee led by Riyadh.

The success of the ongoing dialogue between the representatives of the two sides is expected to end a crisis that started last August when the STC seized control of Aden following days of fighting with government forces.

Political analyst Dr. Mohamed Kizan said the Iran-backed Houthis had largely benefited from the fighting and the revolt against the legitimacy of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

“An agreement between the legitimate government and the STC would unite both sides against Houthi militias and would have a great impact on achieving victories on all Yemeni fronts,” he said.

A Saudi source told Asharq Al-Awsat that the deal also envisages a new 24-member cabinet.
