Tehran’s Foreign Ministry, while attacking the Riyadh agreement to end disputes between the Yemeni constitutional government and the “Transitional Council of the South”, claimed that the agreement would not help solve the Yemeni crisis.
In a move welcomed by international leaders, under the watchful eye of Saudi Arabia, on Tuesday evening, the Yemeni Constitutional government and the Transitional Council of the South signed the Riyadh Agreement.
The agreement calls for a new cabinet consisting of a maximum of 24 ministers within 30 days, allowing the southern and northern inhabitants to have an equal participation and for the transitional council of the south to participate in any political negotiations to end the war.
The issue of selecting ministers will also be selected from those who have no history of participating in battles and provocative actions in recent events.
According to the agreement, all the military and security forces of the two sides, including thousands of transitional council forces in the south, will be recruited by the defense and interior ministries.
The Riyadh agreement has emphasized the transfer of all government-affiliated troops and organizations affiliated with the Aden Transitional Council within 30 days of signing the agreement, to camps outside the city, which will be designated by the allied command.
The Yemeni government, for its part, said the agreement marks the beginning of a new phase with the presence of government agencies in the field of reconstruction of the national comprehensive plan to overcome Houthi militia proxies of the Khomeinist regime, which brought about hardships faced by the Yemeni people.
As a result of the sanctions and Tehran’s inability to sustain its funding, the Houthi rebels became aware of the need to proceed with the signing of the agreement. Tehran has been behind the provocation of the Houthi militias or the Zaidi Shi’a Ansarallah, who seized power in parts of Yemen in early 2015 during a coup.
