Riyadh (Debriefer) - The Yemeni prime minister on Saturday hailed the great efforts and unlimited support provided by Saudi Arabia in Yemen's decisively existential battle to maintain its Arab identity and abort the Iranian project assumed by the Houthi group.
The new government faces grave challenges, Maeen Abdulmalek added in phone call with the GCC secretary-general, hoping to cope with these difficulties to alleviate Yemenis' suffering and stability they pursue.
The Gulf Cooperation Council is keen to see Yemen secure, stable and strong member in its Gulf and Arab context, Dr. Nief al-Hajraf said congratulating the newly-appointed premier.
GCC supports the UN efforts aimed at bringing about a comprehensive political solution for the Yemeni crisis in accordance with the three terms of reference, the Gulf official added in remarks carried by the Riyadh-based Saba.
Yemen's PM said everyone is determined to apply the recently reached mechanism, to accelerate the Riyadh Agreement implementation, that has already started with his mandate and appointment of Aden governor and police director in preparation for next steps.
Last Wednesday, Saudi Arabia declared the new mechanism to speed up the application of the Kingdom-sponsored power-sharing deal.
Following the Saudi declaration, the Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi delegated Dr. Abdulmalek to form a new government, which will include 4 ministers from the Southern Transitional Council, within 30 days.
