Ethnicity > Tribe.No Yemen is like Somalia divided by tribes.
They are all South Semites related to each other.
I can only respect nationhood claims of ethnicities, not parochial tribes.
There is a global norm that you only can obtain sovereignty from the UN recognized state. Self-declaration is not respected by other countries. South Sudan received it through agreements with Sudan. South Yemen can declare all it wants, but won't be recognized so long as Yemen is the UN recognized state. Also, the STC does not even control all of former South Yemen and is a fringe movement.I literally said South Yemen wanted its sovereignty because of it.I never said it started it.
