Former South Yemeni president calls on Oman to step up efforts to achieve end to war in Yemen

Former President of South Yemen, Ali Nasser Mohammed, has on Wednesday called on Oman to intervene to stop the war in Yemen.

According to media sources, Ali Nasser Mohammed sent a congratulatory message to the Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq al-Saeed, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of National Renaissance Day in Oman.

Mohammed stated that he hopes that Oman could play a role to stop the war and resolve the current crises in Yemen in order to preserve unity, the integrity and sovereignty of the entire Yemeni territory.

Former President Ali Nasser Mohammed expressed his great confidence in the success of Sultan Haitham bin Tariq, bringing the views of the Yemeni people closer together, putting an end to the bloodshed, and turning the page of differences through dialogue, without outside interference or domination from anyone.

Ali Nasser Mohammed was president of the Democratic People’s Republic of Yemen, also known as South Yemen, from 1980 to 1986.
After his ousting, he moved to the Yemen Arab Republic (North Yemen). North and South Yemen were eventually merged into a single Republic of Yemen in 1990.

A leading figure in the Yemeni Socialist Party, Mohammed opposed the separatist movement that sought to achieve a new secession of southern Yemen in 1994, and continues to oppose the Saudi occupation and UAE-backed separatist militias in the current conflict.
