The newly created Yemeni Presidential Council has stated that one of its top aims is to alleviate people’s suffering and strengthen the economy.
Yemen’s new governing system was introduced last week, and it is considered as a significant beginning toward resolving some of the country’s most pressing concerns.
According to a statement from the council, a meeting between the council and the administration reviewed the priorities for the current term as well as setting a new route for the war-torn country.
A new phase of work will be marked by the complementarity of national efforts and unity, according to the council.
The council’s president, Rashad Al-Alimi, described the next moment as “special,” saying that “everyone of us should assume our role,” and that he looks forward to a just and complete peace.
Tim Lenderking, the US special envoy for Yemen, urged all parties to engage with the UN-led peace plan and to develop a constructive momentum toward a durable truce.
The US State Department asked the council to “work closely with the Prime Minister and his government as soon as possible to strengthen basic services and economic stability, so that Yemenis can benefit from recent reforms in a real way.”
