SMA NEWS – ADEN THE CAPITAL
Mr. Mukhtar Al-Yafe’y, deputy head of the National Southern Media Authority (NSMA), assisting the Presidium of the Southern Transitional Council (STC), met on Wednesday in his office in the capital, Aden, with DRTV, the Danish public-service radio and television broadcasting corporation.
In the meeting, Mr. Al-Yafe’y welcomed the visiting media team, confirming that Aden welcomes its guests and international media delegations to convey the true image of security and stability in the capital Aden and the governorates of the South, given that Aden is a city of peace, diversity, and tolerance.
In the context of his speech, Al-Yafe’y explained that the current crisis taking place in the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and Bab al-Mandeb Strait of maritime piracy carried out by the Houthi militias just serves their masters in Iran and only aims to disrupt the peace process and will negatively affect food security in the country and disrupt international navigation, highlighting that the international community must stand firmly in the face of these terrorist acts.
Al-Yafe’y reaffirmed the position of the STC on the peace process by ensuring that the cause of the people of the South be included within the negotiating framework of the peace process, since it is a pivotal issue for achieving a comprehensive, lasting, and sustainable peace that fulfills the aspirations of our people in the South in building their civil and federal state.
At the end of his speech, Al-Yafei emphasized facilitating the tasks of the TV team in the performance of its media program in the capital, Aden, and the governorates of the South with all transparency and ease.
In turn, the DRTV team praised the warm reception and facilities provided to achieve its goal of conveying the facts of the humanitarian situation and following up on developments on the ground.
Ms. Anderson, a member of the media team, pointed out the development taking place in the capital, Aden, the positive change it has witnessed in the lives of citizens, and the state of security and stability it enjoys compared to what she observed in her previous visit in 2019.
