The meeting was very positive and discussed several issues concerning human rights in the south and in Yemen in general.

The group requested that the commission may activate its role in Adan and to train NGOs and security forces about human rights in addition to supporting security belt forces and elites’ forces as they are the first defense line against terrorism and being weak will only benefit terrorists. The group requested that the commission may open an office in Adan and to works with NGOs as the commission should exist on the ground. The group also asked the commission not to listen to politically-directed channels that deliberately falsify reports about conditions in the south.
