Yemen's Southern Transitional Council (STC) reiterated on Sunday that it sticks to self-government in southern provinces under its control, two days after it had welcomed the Saudi-led coalition's call for implementing the Riyadh Agreement.
"The self-government announcement won't be retreated," head of the Emirati-backed STC's national committee said in remarks carried by the STC website, as the "self-government came to being to stay."
The STC was pushed to take this decision by the "disastrous situations suffered by Aden, in particular and the south in general, and the government's abandoning its role and duties," Ahmed Bin Boraik added.
On Friday, the separatist STC stated that it welcomed the Arab coalition's call for implementing the Riyadh deal and restoring normality in Aden to pre-announcement of self-rule.
Earlier on Sunday, the Yemeni internationally-recognized government accused the STC of sticking to its rebellion.
The STC announcement "is a reckless move" and "persistence of armed rebellion," the Yemeni told the UNSC five permanent member states' ambassadors to Yemen.
The STC "is still insisting to keep on its rebellion and trying to impose illegal measures aimed to appropriate the State's resources," Mohamed al-Hadhrami added.
On 25 April, the Emirati-backed STC announced state of emergency and autonomy in Aden and other southern provinces, amid international rebuff.
