SMA News – The IndependentIn a statement for “The Independent”, a British newspaper, Mansour Saleh, vice chairman of the media department of STC said: “The council doesn’t understand the Saudi attitude as rejection for status que but as an urge to provide more suitable atmosphere for dialogue and to convince the government with it”.
He added: “The Saudis realize that what happened in Aden is a southern desire for restoring our lands. They also realize that it is not wise to be against the will of a people who suffered a lot from internal unjust and occupation. The Yemeni union of May 1990 failed because it was turned into a project of occupation and robbery because of northern arrogance”.
Saleh thinks that tries to reinforce the northern existence in the south is a try to implant Iran and Al-Houthis with all their hostile agendas against the region and the biggest loser will be Saudi Arabia.
Concerning steps taken by the council along with Jeddah talks, Saleh said: The southern can maintain their achievement (in a hint to the full control of the council over the state’s major facilities in Aden and other southern governorates) and they have the military power and political will to reject any occupation agendas under the notions of union. The Saudis know well that the northern are not willing to the union and they only think of robbing the fortunes of the south. This is proved over 27 years of occupation under the notion of union, not mentioning that the north is now at the hands of Al-Houthis and may need tens of years to be liberated”.
