Ambassador Mohammed Said al-Jaber's move to Aden, Yemen's economic hub, underlines Saudi Arabia's support for Hadi.

Saudi Arabia joined Western states earlier this month in evacuating its embassy in Sanaa, after opposition fighters controled the capital city of Sanaa.

While under siege in Sanaa, Hadi submitted his resignation, which he later retracted after fleeing to Aden.

"The Saudi ambassador returned to Aden yesterday together with the Gulf Cooperation Council secretary-general and began today to pursue his mission officially in Aden," Rajeh Badi, an aide to Hadi, confirmed to Reuters. He said envoys from the other Gulf Arab states would follow suit.
