The United States welcomes the signing of the Riyadh Agreement between the Republic of Yemen Government (ROYG) and the Southern Transitional Council (STC) yesterday in Riyadh.  We are hopeful that with this agreement, all parties will work together to end the conflict and to achieve the peace and stability that Yemen’s people deserve. We thank Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the government of Saudi Arabia, President Hadi and his government, and the government of the United Arab Emirates for facilitating this pivotal agreement, which will support UN-led efforts toward a comprehensive political settlement. Yesterday, the ROYG and STC demonstrated the spirit of compromise needed from all sides to reach a lasting solution. The United States urges the parties to adhere to the agreement’s implementation. We will continue to work with our international partners to bring peace, prosperity, and security to Yemen.
