President of the Supreme Political Council, Mahdi al-Mashat, has congratulated the Yemeni people and the Leader of the Revolution, Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, on 54th anniversary of South Yemen’s Independence Day.

Al-Mashat indicated in a televised speech on Monday, to the national stance against aggression and foreign occupation, which “puts us in a state of permanent harmony with the merits of this glorious day, November 30, which presented itself as a distinguishing mark in its original version in the experiences of history.”

“The true expression of celebration of this historic day shows only in the steadfastness and patience of the Yemeni people.”

Talking on the development of the battles and escalation on the internal fighting fronts, al-Mashat said that “there are indications that come from within the mercenary camps, which give rise to optimism in a sign indicating that Yemen will be free and proud.”

With regard to the battles of Ma’rib and the liberation of 14 districts, the President explained that they have been keen since the beginning of the war to keep Ma’rib away from the conflict and to make many initiatives and concessions in order to achieve this goal, “but the Saudi-led aggression coalition forces rejected and have insisted that Ma’rib be a military base for foreign forces and al-Qaeda members.”

Mahdi al-Mashat emphasised the Yemeni army and Popular Forces’ “preparation to stop defensive military actions right now if the aggression stops, and the siege lifts, in addition the practical commitment to ending the occupation and addressing the repercussions of the war.”

The Yemeni President condemned the “hostile American methods and international silence towards war crimes committed by the Saudi aggression against our dear people of Yemen.”

He continued: “We call on everyone to try to listen to Sana’a’s good intentions, right positions, objectives and equitable visions that are capable of achieving peace,” warning against “the spread of hostile disinformation campaigns, which has been led by Washington, Britain and France in order to distort our positions for peace.”
