Alsahwa Net –A Yemeni presidential official has said that banning the return of the government from its five-year-long exile in Riyadh “has caused many crises in the temporary capital Aden and surrounding regions.”
In a meeting with Sputnik news agency, the deputy director of the presidential office Ahmed al-Eesi said: “Banning the government headed by President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi from return to Aden over the past five years has caused many crises in the temporary capital and its surroundings.”
“Military and security militias with no loyalty to the government have been formed. They (the militias) answer only to warlords and certain authorities,” he said.
Al-Eesi said he hopes that Saudi Arabia would insure the re-deployment of forces and withdraw the heavy weapons from the Southern Transitional Council militia in line with the Riyadh Agreement. He said that the Riyadh Agreement is clear with regards to the archipelago of Socotra, occupied by the United Arab Emirates and proxy militias. “It has to be known that the Riyadh Agreement is clear on Socotra and other territories: The state must assert its control all over Yemen.”
He said he hopes that Saudi Arabia would work on “implementing the security and military aspect [of the Riyadh Agreement]: Redeploying forces, withdrawing heavy arms [from the militias] and ensuring the government’s return to Aden.”
“If there is a good faith, all problems can be resolved,” he said.
