Restructuring of security forces in Yemen welcomed by UN envoy

Jamal Benomar, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's Special Adviser on Yemen

Measures recently taken in Yemen to restructure security forces have been welcomed by Jamal Benomar, the Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on Yemen.

On 6 August, President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi of Yemen adopted decrees concerning the restructuring of the Yemeni security sector.

He said the move is an important step in implementing Yemen's November 2011 Transition Agreement to create conditions and take steps to integrate the armed forces under a unified national and professional leadership.

Mr. Benomar calls on all concerned to work together to ensure the effective implementation of these decrees which, he says, are essential to promoting peace and stability in Yemen.
