Al-Jabwani accuses pro-coalition leadership council of seeking to divide Yemen

ADEN, May 25 (YPA) – A former minister in the pro-coalition government accused on Thursday the head of the Saudi-formed Presidential Council, Rashad al-Alimi, who resides in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, of trying to divide Yemen.

Saleh al-Jabwani, the former Minister of Transport, said on twitter, “The Presidential Leadership Council, which is entrusted with the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the Republic of Yemen working to divide Yemen publicly,” describing that as “shameful and unfortunate.”

“Three of the council’s members are becoming leaders in a separatist movement, which has not happened in the history,” added he, calling for an end to the farce taking place in the southern and eastern provinces.

Al-Jabwani held Saudi Arabia fully responsible for these moves before the Yemeni people.
This came after deputy head of the group of representatives loyal to the coalition, Abdulaziz Jabari, accused last week Saudi Arabia and the UAE of seeking to divide Yemen through the chairman and members of the so-called “leadership council.

Accusations of dismembering Yemen have been raised by the political components of the coalition after 8 years of support for the war of the coalition on Yemen since March 26, 2015.
