Alsahwa Net- The Yemeni Prime Minister, Maeen Abdulmalik, arrived on Monday Aden with a number of his cabinet members.
The government’s return to the southern city is part of the Al-Riyadh agreement that was signed on 5 November between the government and the southern separation rebels.
The government officials including the prime minster himself were forced to leave Aden early last August following takeover of the city by the southern separation militants known as the Southern Transitional Council (STC).
“We arrived Aden and great challenges are ahead of us,” Abdulmalik tweeted on his Twitter account following his arrival in the city.
“Yet, our collective determination is strong to move forward at the application of the Al-Riyadh agreement to establish for a new phase of the state presence with participation of all national spectrums,” the prime minister said.
“Today, we unify our collective efforts to defeat the Iranian project in Yemen and retrieve the state,” said Abdulmalik.
He explained that the government’s presence in Aden means that it returns to exercise its responsibility.
He added that the return to Aden will enable the city to play its role as an interim capital of Yemen and a center of modernization and enlightenment. He affirmed that everyone has to participate towards successful implementation of the Al-Riyadh agreement to reinforce the state institutions.
