A post from the UN’s Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen indicates that progress is being made in achieving a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Yemen.
“Following a series of meetings with the parties in Riyadh and Muscat, including with the President of the Presidential Leadership Council, Rashad al Alimi, and Ansar Allah chief negotiator, Mohammed Abdul Salam, the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, welcomes the parties’ commitment to a set of measures to implement a nation-wide ceasefire, improve living conditions in Yemen, and engage in preparations for the resumption of an inclusive political process under UN auspices,” says the press release. “The Special Envoy will now engage with the parties to establish a roadmap under UN auspices that includes these commitments and supports their implementation.
“The UN roadmap will include, among other elements, the parties’ commitment to implement a nationwide ceasefire, pay all public sector salaries, resume oil exports, open roads in Taiz and other parts of Yemen, and further ease restrictions on Sana’a Airport and the Hudaydah port. The roadmap will also establish implementation mechanisms and prepare for a Yemeni-owned political process under UN auspices.
