Aden (Debriefer) The Yemeni foreign minister, Ahmed Bin Mubarak, returned to the interim capital of Aden on Monday, after 8 months.
For the first time since last February, Yemen's top diplomat "arrived in Aden after successful visits to Arab and foreign capitals," said an official in the foreign ministry.
FM Bin Mubarak took part in several international events, mainly the Arab summit and UN general assembly, the official added.
While the Yemeni prime minister, Maeen Abdulmalek, and a group of his ministers came back to Aden few weeks ago, some other ministers chose to stay away from the capital until the Riyadh Agreement's military section is fully applied.
The Yemeni official government often blames the Emirati-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) for stalled application of the Riyadh deal, delaying the return of the government in full to Aden.
The Saudi-brokered pact was signed on 5 November 2019 between the government and STC in Riyadh with UN support to end disputes between the two parties.
The deal led to the formation of a power-sharing government on 18 December 2020, but the deal's military section is still waiting fulfillment.
