The Southern Transitional Council (STC) is a political organization in Yemen that was established in May 2017 during the ongoing Yemeni civil war. It is also known as the Transitional Council of the Arab South (STSA) or the Transitional Council of South Yemen.

The STC is made up of separatist groups from southern Yemen, which seized control of the port city of Aden in August 2019 after driving out Saudi-backed Yemeni government forces. Since then, the STC has governed Aden and other parts of southern Yemen, acting as a de facto separatist administration in the region.

Benefit of reconciliation between Saudi Arabia and Iran and support of Emirates

A historic agreement reached in March between Saudi Arabia and Iran under China’s auspices has raised hopes that its effects could also be felt in Yemen, which has been a flashpoint throughout the bitter rivalry between the two countries.

The STC has sought to halt its operations in northern Yemen, which is mainly controlled by the Houthi rebels, who are in talks with Saudi Arabia to end the Yemeni conflict.

Voices close to MBZ, the UAE president, were the first to praise this “historic agreement” to separate Yemen. It is the same voices that propagate the new name of this new country: South Arabia.

The war in Yemen has killed hundreds of thousands of people, displaced millions and damaged the country’s economy. Millions of people rely on humanitarian aid in a country already considered one of the world’s poorest.
