Riyadh Agreement Yemen Pdf
Both the local Hadi and STC parties and the international community welcomed the Riyadh agreement when it was signed last November. The agreement focused on three things: the creation of a national partnership cabinet, the change of local authorities and the change of head of security in all southern governorates to improve the situation of existence in the liberated governorates, and the restructuring of the military and security forces in the south to place all units under the roof of the Ministry of Defence or the Ministry of the Interior. 5. Reorganization of the armed forces in the governorates (Abyan and Lahj) under the command of the Ministry of Defence, with the same measures that were implemented in Aden province within sixty days of the signing of this agreement. As the name suggests, the Saudi design agreement. Through it, the kingdom had tried to assume ultimate authority over the Yemeni armed forces that were confronting the armed Houthi movement – Yemen`s capital, Sanaa, and much of the north of the country five years earlier – and to improve often violent confrontations between the parties that have underestimated the fight against their common Houthi enemy. The agreement should do two things at the same time. First, and immediately, the military confrontation between President Abdo Rabbu Mansour Hadi`s troops and troops close to the STC was halted, bringing the TCC to a new level in August 2019, allowing the STC to take control of Aden and parts of Shabwa and Abyan. Second, the Riyadh agreement is expected to flatten disputes between Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and its two allies on the ground. I congratulate the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council on their agreement on the way forward. Ambassador Enestrum: I think it is extremely important that we and other members of the international community have Yemen at the forefront of the political and humanitarian agenda. We believe that we must continue with the message and the pressure on the parties. We have seen that this will have an impact if the international community continues to hold messages and meetings and push the parties from different angles.
I have already said that we strongly believe that we should give our full support to the Special Envoy and it is of course important that he has the support of the Security Council. In this context, we see that there are many questions about the unity of the Security Council at the moment, but when it comes to Yemen, there are good similarities between the P5s. When I talk about my own country, we feel that we have confidence on all sides. We had this meeting in Stockholm a few years ago. We also have good relations with regional players. I think it is important that we and other members of the international community clearly support peace and a PEACE agreement negotiated by the United Nations. We would do it financially, we would do it politically, and we would do it with good functions. And we would associate it with the humanitarian aid we provide and, potentially, in supporting development cooperation. Of course, this country will need huge investments after a peace agreement to build a stronger country. I thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the successful mediation of this agreement and for its most intense diplomatic efforts. Ambassador Enestrum: I think the Stockholm meeting was a good meeting in the sense that we had the Stockholm agreement, that we had all the parties there and that we avoided hostilities in Hudayda that could have had disastrous consequences.
Of course, we hoped that the implementation of the Stockholm agreement would be faster than what we saw.
