Yemen peace talks end futile in Kuwait

ADEN, aug. 07 (MNA) – The UN Yemen envoy officially declared on Saturday the end of the peace talks in Kuwait without making any breakthroughs to stop a 16-month civil war in Yemen.

The envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed also said during a press conference that the peace negotiations between the Saudi-backed Yemeni government and the Houthi group and their allies will resume within a month.

"We are leaving Kuwait today but the Yemeni peace consultations will continue," he said, adding that "we received guarantees from the Yemeni warring parties about their commitment to resume the talks again in a month, and the location will be decided later."

Ould Cheikh also expressed his gratitude for the Kuwaiti government and denied the reports that Kuwait will host another round of the Yemeni peace talks.

According to the UN envoy, the two Yemeni peace delegations will have another chance and more time in order to discuss their leaderships and the next steps to achieve peace during the upcoming talks.
