Yemen separatists leave UN-sponsored talks

The Southern Movement announced that it is pulling out of the talks overnight on Friday. The group wants the breakaway of the areas of the formerly independent south.

The movement member, Yassin Mekkawi, said the separatists have suspended their “participation in the (UN-backed) national dialogue until it is moved out of the country.”

He further noted that negotiators have been facing rising “political and psychological pressure.”

The move comes as an unnamed official in the southern province of Lahij said on Saturday that fighting broke out between the secessionists and Yemeni troops after the separatists opened fire on an army convoy, leaving nine soldiers injured.
