The Presidency of the Parliament in the Republic of Yemen has on Wednesday denounced what it called what it called a “farce”, referring to the of swearing-in ceremony of a Saudi-led council in Aden.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the parliament presidency expressed its disapproval and condemnation of this farce, led by Saudi Arabia and the US. The parliament reiterated that many of the council’s members have had their membership in parliament and government revoked long ago, making them incapable of representing Yemen.
The statement warned against any moves in the name of the Yemeni parliament that would compromise Yemeni sovereignty or justify and cover up the massacres and war crimes committed by “the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression coalition countries with British-Zionist support.”
The Presidency of the Parliament expressed its thanks and appreciation to all members who are abroad who did not attend and did not participate in the Saudi plot.
The statement pointed out that the Parliament in the Republic of Yemen, based in the capital, Sanaa, holds its sessions on a continuous basis and exercises its constitutional powers from its constitutional headquarters.
In its statement, the Parliament Presidency confirmed that “it is following with great interest the initiative announced by the President of the Supreme Political Council, Mahdi al-Mashat, regarding peace and the subsequent announcement by the UN Envoy to Yemen on a two-month armistice under UN auspices.”
