The legitimate government in Yemen and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) signed the “Riyadh Agreement” on Tuesday, under the auspices of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who officially announced the deal.

The Saudi Crown Prince said in the televised speech that the agreement is “a step toward a political solution to end the war in Yemen.”

The agreement between the two sides, which are united against the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, initiates a new stage of cooperation in the Yemeni governorates under their control.
