The UN Security Council on Wednesday expressed deep concern at the Southern Transitional Council's (STC's) declared state of emergency and self-rule in Aden.

In a statement, the UNSC reiterated "commitment to Yemen's unity, sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity."

Having called for accelerated application of the Riyadh Agreement, the most powerful body expressed concerns that the STC's actions could disperse ceasefire efforts exerted by UN Envoy Martin Griffiths in Yemen.

Saturday midnight, the STC announced state of emergency and autonomy in Aden and other southern provinces, effective from Sunday dawn.

"The so-called transitional council refuses to listen to reason and fulfill its onuses under Riyadh pact, and insists on evading and covering its failure by announcing the persistence of its armed rebellion against the State," the Yemeni foreign minister tweeted.

The STC is accountable for "perilous, catastrophic ramifications of this announcement," FM Mohamed al-Hadhrami added.
