Yemen deal calls for government reshuffle, unifying forces in south

DUBAI (Reuters) - A Saudi-brokered deal between Yemen’s government and southern separatists signed on Tuesday calls for a new cabinet with equal southern representation and bringing all armed forces under state control.

A copy of the deal seen by Reuters, reached to end a power struggle in the south of Yemen, stipulated that the separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) be included in any political negotiations to end the country’s more than four-year war.

All military and security forces would be incorporated into the defense and interior ministries.
