US. report: ben brik failed to rally the masses against Hadi's government and Yemen will not return as it was before 1990

The Gulf International Forum (GIF), said that the recent escalation and fighting in southern Yemen, shows the failure of the Arab alliance to achieve its stated objectives, and the weakness of the legitimate government that came to restore its authority over the whole of Yemen, stressing that any possible change in the structure of the Yemeni state will have repercussions that resonate Regionally and internationally.

The Gulf International Forum, based in Washington, D.C., added that Hani Ben Brik's call for the masses to rally in support of an UAE-sponsored coup did not mobilize enough people to revolt against President Hadi's government.

In a recent report, seen by Al-Masdar online, the forum stressed that calls for the southern transition to secede do not necessarily represent the people of the south, citing the failure of Hani Ben Brik to stimulate enough popular support to engage in a large-scale rebellion against the legitimate government.

The report pointed out that many southern leaders and personalities oppose the UAE's growing influence in southern Yemen, pointing out that the influence of the southern transitional centered in the forces trained by the United Arab Emirates and its weapons, and limited to Aden in general, in "Hadramout and Mahra" The impact of the southern transition is not strong. In these areas there are a number of sheikhs and influential figures who may accept independence but are strongly opposed to colonialism in favor of the transitional who is fighting on behalf of the UAE."

The report pointed to several factors that make the secession of the south a case of concern, including the issue of borders and previous disputes between different southern entities ("how to manage the "south of Yemen"), especially with regard to the role of the UAE's external influence. The emergence of such conflicts could have negative effects on the entire region given the economically important location of southern Yemen on the Bab al-Mandab Strait.

The report noted that the Saudi-led Arab coalition and the UAE in Yemen, whose stated goal is to restore the legitimacy of the Yemeni government, "has done nothing more than strengthen the position of the Houthis in northern Yemen and the separatists in southern Yemen."

The report spoke about the insistence of the United States and its support for the idea of one Yemen, pointing out that the issue of separation or continuation of unity in Yemen is mainly due to the agreement between Yemenis and the opinion of the Yemeni people, in addition to the opinion of the surrounding countries, which will be affected by the shape of the next Yemeni state.

"There are still options available to continue in a single state, federal state or confederation, which may have some acceptance among Yemenis and international players", but any peace agreement that resolves the current conflict will certainly change the shape of Yemen and the structure of the state and will not be as it has been known since 1990" the report concluded..
