Brigadier General Tariq Saleh, a member of the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council, stated on Saturday that the Riyadh meetings and their consequences resulted in a profound political shift in Yemen, as well as a peaceful and orderly transition of power.
This was revealed during his meeting with local authority leaders, executive office directors, political and social figures, sheikhs, and dignitaries from the West Coast regions of Taiz Governorate.
Saleh stated that the Presidential Command Council’s tasks in managing the transitional phase are to bring peace to Yemen, restore the state, and end the coup through peaceful means, emphasizing that Yemeni forces fighting to restore the state, establish security and stability in the region, and prevent foreign projects have all options available to them.
He emphasized that the Presidential Leadership Council is working together to repair and rejuvenate state institutions as a single unit.
“There is a plan to revive the capital, Aden, at the infrastructure level to create a role model so that citizens in the liberated areas can live in security, and stability and receive state services,” he said.
“There are effective institutions that look after the citizen through the interaction of the government side and the concerted efforts of all,” he added.
The suffering of residents as a result of the Houthi militia takeover was highlighted by Tariq Saleh.
He said, “Iran’s arm in Yemen must be aware that the war has suffocated Yemeni citizens for seven years, squandered a great deal of public and private property, and damaged infrastructure.”
He went on to say that the Houthi militias benefit from the war’s persistence by levying taxes, plundering money and property, and pursuing an agenda that is not in Yemen’s best interests.
