Saudi Arabia proposes new mechanism for stability in Yemen's south July 29, 2020

ISLAMABAD-Saudi Arabia has presented a framework to expedite a stalled November deal in Yemen’s south designed to end a standoff between nominal allies.

Saudi state news agency SPA said Riyadh is seeking to unite separatist and government forces in Yemen’s south to concentrate their common fight against Houthi forces, which control the north of the country.

Under the new Saudi resolution, Southern Transitional Council is required to rescind self-rule as both parties implement the November deal.

The Yemeni government welcomed the new Saudi resolution.
