Riyadh, Colonel Turki Al-Malki, official spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, affirmed that the Coalition's operations are continued to support Yemen's stability, restore legitimacy and liberate all Yemeni cities from the presence of Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militias and extremist groups, adding that the coalition supports development and maintains potentials of the Yemeni people.
During a press conference of the Joint Forces Command of the Coalition held in Riyadh today, Colonel Al-Malki said that the escalation in Aden, Yemen's interim capital, by the Transitional Council was unfortunate because the events have moved into a dangerous level in this period which resulted in many deaths, martyrs and injuries. "These acts have harmed the interests of the Yemeni people, the legitimate government's interests as well as the private and public properties," he said.
Al-Malki pointed out that the Joint Forces Command of the Coalition worked with all political and social components and the legitimate Yemeni government to achieve calm and engage in a dialogue.
"We will not allow tampering with the interests of the Yemeni people during this difficult and critical period in Aden," Al-Malki said, calling for a joint work from all political and social components with the Yemeni legitimate government to achieve aspirations of the Yemeni people and liberate all Yemeni territories.
The spokesman for the Coalition Forces, "Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen", appreciated the acceptance of the Transitional Council and the Yemeni government of the upcoming dialogue, which came in accordance with the joint action of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Subsequently, a team of Joint Forces Command of the Coalition from Saudi Arabia and UAE formed a joint committee to oversee the withdrawal of the military forces of the Transitional Council from the units and headquarters that have been controlled, indicating that the process of withdrawal actually began from these government headquarters, including Aden Hospital, Central Bank, Judiciary and Secretariat General of the Council of Ministers.
