Southern Issue

The Gulf Cooperation Council implementation mechanism and the National Dialogue Conference’s Technical Committee have placed a strong emphasis on addressing Yemen’s Southern issue.

The working group tasked with addressing the Southern Issue will attempt to discuss and make significant progress in the following areas: the fundamental nature of north-south relations in Yemen; confidence-building measures; the causes of southern grievances; procedures by which property can be returned to rightful owners and the matter of increasing job opportunities and development in the south; and the nature and distribution of state structures in north and south Yemen.
