Commenting on the Southern Transitional Council's rebellion acts that drew close to a complete coup d'état against the government in the temporary capital Aden by Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign issued a statement on Thursday calling what happened "a failed coup attempt."
The statement said: "The Republic of Yemen considers the coup attempt committed by the rebels in Aden, the continuous acts to undermine and impede the work of the legitimate government and the formation of armed militias outside the command of the Armed Forces a blatant violation of the UNSC resolution no. 2216 (2015)."
"Such acts threaten the security of the region, violate the principle goal for which the Arab Coalition … was established."
The statement thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which mediated the withdrawal of the rebels from government military brigades they had seized. The statement also thanked the brotherly and friendly countries that condemned the rebellion.
The government called on all brotherly and friendly countries to continue supporting Yemen in these hard times in accordance with the international resolutions.
