STC delegation suddenly leaves Riyadh

SANAA, Aug. 12 (YPA) – The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) suddenly left on Wednesday Riyadh city heading to Abu Dhabi city of UAE, according to sources familiar with Riyadh negotiations.

The sources said that leaving the delegation came because of the Saudis’ insistence on the STC delegation to sit with Ali Mohsen face to face.

The sources explained that the STC delegation strongly refused any discussions or to sit down with Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar to be accused of committing “major” crimes in the southern governorates of Yemen in the summer war of 1994, in addition to accusing Al-Ahmar of killing leaders and cadres from the southern governorates since 1990.
