The United Nations Security Council yesterday urged the parties to the conflict in Yemen to immediately resume talks with the UN envoy for that country and discuss his proposal for a comprehensive agreement covering both security and political issues.
Reiterating his call on all warring parties in Yemen to immediately implement the cessation of hostilities, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the reported coalition airstrike on a hospital in the rural town of Hajjah which killed 11 people.
In its response to the House of Commons International Development Committee report on the crisis in Yemen, the UK government has maintained that, despite all of the evidence on the contrary, the Saudi Arabian military has not breached international humanitarian law, says Campaign Against Arms Trade.
In his latest update on the Yemeni peace talks currently under way in Kuwait, the UN envoy for the conflict-torn country has reported that the two delegations discussed proposals to bridge the gap between their respective visions, reaching consensus on some issues.
The food security and nutrition situation in Yemen will turn into a humanitarian disaster unless urgent funding is accessible for the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to deliver timely aid, the UN agency has warned.
