The Yemeni internationally recognized legitimate government called the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) statement, which included "self-management for the south" and the declaration of a state of emergency in southern cities, with a complete reversal of legitimacy and the outcomes of the Riyadh agreement.
According to a government statement published by the Aden-based Yemeni News Agency "Saba" on. Sunday, the government considered the announcement of what it called "Aidrous Al-Zubaidi", the head of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), a clear rebellion against the legitimate government and a frank coup against the Riyadh agreement and the completion of the armed rebellion against the state in August 2019 .
The government statement, he pointed out that what the leaders of the transitional council made was an attempt to escape the repercussions of failure to provide anything to the citizens of Aden who are suffering from fire crises, and the lack of services after the complete disruption and seizure of state institutions and preventing the government from exercising its functions.
The statement included the government's request to the Coalition for Support of Legitimacy led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to bear historical responsibility towards the territorial integrity of the Republic of Yemen, calling on the international community, the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organization of the Islamic Conference and the Gulf Cooperation Council to condemn this coup against the state and its institutions.
The government statement praised what he called the state of national consensus from all governorates, in particular the local authorities in the southern governorates, and from all political parties and components, and all the Yemeni people in the various governorates, who confirmed their rejection of these reckless steps.
