UN Envoy urges Yemeni negotiators to make progress in peace talks

KUWAIT, May 23 (KUNA) — The Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmad has called on all the Yemeni parties to make progress, in order to alleviate the burden placed on the Yemeni people.
“Peace talks are always complicated and require time, however I urge the Yemeni parties to exert all possible effort to reach a sustainable peace agreement in the near future,” he said in a press statement Monday.
“Any delay, wastes time and causes the tragic loss of more innocent lives. The situation in Yemen requires urgent attention and any delay only serves the interests of those who do not believe in peace.” He also expressed his gratitude to the Government of Yemen (GoY) for its decision to return to the negotiating table.
He pointed out that GoY delegation together with the delegations of the General People’s Congress (GPC) and Ansarallah met in a plenary session today. He has also convened separate bilateral meetings with the GoY delegation, as well as with the GPC and Ansarallah delegation.
In addition, a special meeting of the prisoners and detainee committee was held. The GoY delegation to the committee submitted a list to the UN Special Envoy containing the names of a number of detained Yemeni journalists who went on a hunger strike in protest against their detention, the UN Envoy’s statement unveiled.
The UN-sponsored Yemeni peace talks, hosted by Kuwait since April 21, resumed on Monday, after a five-day halt as the Yemeni government suspended talks last Tuesday accusing Anasarullah and GPC delegation of procrastination and non-compliance with the peace talks’ points of reference; mainly UN resolution 2216, the GCC initiative and its implementation mechanism for the outcome of the national dialogue.
Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi agreed during a meeting in Doha Saturday to resume participation in the peace talks after receiving guarantees on the applicability of the UN resolution on all parties. (pickup previous) nma.hrz.ibi
