Yemen needs no new pact between the official government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC), advisor to the Yemeni President said, as the Riyadh Agreement can stop the ongoing conflict between the two parties.

The deal's "military and political matrix is adequate to get out of violence and conflict," Ahmed Obaid Bin Daghr added on Twitter.

"What we need is fresh minds that dismiss violence as a route for power and accept what decided by ballot box or, if not in place, the constitution and law."

On Thursday, in his speech to the 30th anniversary of the Yemeni Unification, President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi accused the STC of persisting "rebellion" and refusing to apply the Riyadh pact.

Abdul Aziz Jobari, another advisor to the Yemeni President, does not agree with Bin Daghr, calling on the government to end commitment to the Riyadh deal, with leaks saying a new Yemeni prime minister would be nominated "by non-Yemeni will".

On 5 November 2019, the Saudi-brokered Riyadh Agreement was inked by the Yemeni internationally-recognized government and the UAE-backed STC in Riyadh.

But the deal's implementation has been stalled, particularly after the STC declared self-government in the south on 25 April.
