RIYADH (Debriefer)--The southern transitional council on Monday said it is impossible for the Yemeni unity to continue to exist in any form.
At a meeting with the German Charge d' Affaires, Jan Krauszer, at his residence in the Saudi capital Riyadh, the chairman of the council's negotiation unit, Nasser Al-Khubaji, said the future and success of the political process lie in recognising the legitimate aspirations of the southern people, including the right to self-determination.
North Yemen united with south Yemen in 1990.
The meeting brought up progress on the mechanism to accelerate the implementation of the Riyadh agreement with the government, according to a statement carried by the council's website.
The council is committed to the agreement and has provided the countries sponsoring it with all visions, plans and required information to form a new government and pull forces out of Aden, Al-Khubaji said.
The UAE-backed council has seized the interim capital Aden and other southern regions, including the Socotra archipelago, after battles with the government forces.
