The Southern Transitional Council called on the United Nations to involve it in all stages of the political process in Yemen, in a comment on the briefing of the new UN envoy, Hans Grundberg, before the members of the UN Security Council.

In a statement, the STC said, "Achieving lasting peace in Yemen cannot be achieved only through listening to the southerners, but through their real participation in all stages of the political process."

He added, "The representation of the south in the political process needs an international will to ensure real and lasting peace, as this cannot be achieved unless words are translated into actions."

The statement indicated that "the Riyadh Agreement still constitutes a real opportunity for a successful peace process led by the United Nations, if a joint negotiating delegation is formed as stipulated in the agreement."

The statement accused the legitimacy of not fulfilling its obligations contained in the agreement, especially with regard to the return of the quota government to Aden.
