Head of Yemen’s Presidential Leadership Council (PLC) Rashad Al Alimi met today with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Amman where they discussed recent regional and international developments, Jordanian state news agency reported.
During the meeting, Jordan’s King stressed that putting an end to the crisis in Yemen is a necessity, yet in a way that “guarantees its unity and stability, and the safety of its territory.”
According to the agency, the meeting covered “the friendly ties between the two countries and the latest regional and international developments.”
This comes amid a visit conducted by UN Special Envoy to Yemen Hans Grundberg to Amman who said in his briefing to the UNSC that he was working hard to get the warring parties to agree to renewing and expanding the UN-led truce that expired in early October.
On April 7, Yemen’s former President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi issued a decree, in a televised speech, dismissing his Vice President Ali Mohsen Al Ahmar and forming a Presidential Leadership Council to which he handed his powers.
Yemen’s PLC, which currently runs the war-torn country, is headed by Major General Dr. Rashad al-Alimi, former interior minister, with the membership of seven Yemeni political and military leaders who share the title of ‘Deputy Chairman of the Presidential Leadership’.
