What is the connection between the developments in Marib and Yemen secession? Aidarus al-Zoubaidi answers you!
ISWNews Analysis Group: Aidarus al-Zoubaidi , head of Southern Transition Council, demanded US full support for south of Yemen secession referendum.
In his latest remarks with media, Aidarus al-Zoubaidi asked Joe Biden, US president, to support the independence referendum under supervision of UN in south of Yemen to help end Yemen war.
He said: Fall of Marib changes the political scene in Yemen since Mansour Hadi (resigned) government loses their last important area in north of Yemen. This can help accelerate the talks between north and south of Yemen.
Fall of Marib might bring up the situation in which the transition government controls south of Yemen and Sanaa government controls north of Yemen and it is rational that the negotiations start between sides with biggest lands.
Yemen secession plan, that was prepared by the West before, is now being implemented by Southerners under support of UAE. Following Riyadh agreement, Southerners earned more credit and have an open hand to act in the direction of dividing Yemen. Liberation of Marib, which reduces the economic and political power of the resigned government, will affect their relation with Southerners.
In his remarks in Moscow, Aidarus al-Zoubaidi talked about normalizing relations with Zionist Regime which shows the importance of Marib. Since liberation of Marib by Ansar Allah is key to keep Yemen united.
