The United States welcomes the signing of an agreement outlining the principles of Yemen’s future political structure. We encourage all Yemenis to seize this spirit of compromise to conclude the National Dialogue as soon as possible in order to move forward with subsequent steps in the transition process, including constitutional reform and national elections. We remain committed to supporting President Hadi, National Dialogue delegates, and the Yemeni people as they work to achieve meaningful democratic reform through the implementation of the Gulf Cooperation Council political transition initiative.
