For his part, Mr. Thomas expressed his happiness with this meeting, expressing his understanding of the complex situation in Yemen and in the south in particular, due to the overlapping of international and regional interests in the region in general and the continuation of the war in Yemen, wishing the Transitional Council to achieve practical successes that the people touched to alleviate their humanitarian suffering and contribute to achieving lasting peace.
