U.S. Ambassador John Abizaid Statement on Riyadh Agreement

The United States welcomes the signing of the agreement between the Republic of Yemen Government (ROYG) and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) that took place on November 5 in Riyadh.  We are hopeful that the parties will use this critical opportunity to work together to end the conflict and to achieve the peace and stability that Yemen’s people deserve. We commend Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz for their role in bringing the parties together to restore unity in shared efforts to end Yemen’s long and destructive conflict.
