On Saturday, Bahrain’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs lauded the execution of the Riyadh Agreement by the Yemeni sides.
According to a foreign ministry statement, the ministry statement related that it was an important step to strengthen and unify Yemeni efforts to confront the Iran-supported Houthi militias.
The statement also stated that the deal would achieve the aspirations of the brotherly Yemeni people for security, peace, and stability. Bahrain also praised the sincere efforts made by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who started the talks.
The Riyadh Agreement was concluded this month, after delaying in August when the Southern Transitional Council’s southern-separatist movement suspended their participation.
According to SPA, Saudi Arabia praised the government formation in Yemen as part of the deal that established a power-sharing structure between the Southern Transitional Council and the Yemeni government, containing 24 ministers from the two groups.
Moreover, Bahrain thanked Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for their concern and interest in the security, stability, and prosperity of brotherly Yemen.
The statement also related: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hails the formation of a government of political competencies that includes all Yemen’s social components to put an end to military arrangements, appreciating the Yemeni parties’ keenness on the supreme interests of the Republic of Yemen and their endeavors to unify efforts to restore Yemeni legitimacy and achieve peace and stability in all parts of brotherly Yemen.
Indeed, Saudi Arabia introduced the Riyadh Agreement in November 2019 to seek to stop the conflict in the country’s south that appeared in 2017.
