UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths is planning to present the “general framework” of his peace plan on Yemen before mid-June and is looking forward to a formal re-launch of peace negotiations afterwards, a statement issued by the UN said on Tuesday.
“The Special Envoy is making good progress towards the production of a framework for negotiations as promised in his briefing to the UN Security Council in April. He plans to put that to the council in the first half of June,” the statement said.
It added, however: “We are all gravely concerned by the negative impact of the recent escalations of attacks on the political process.”
Griffiths reiterated his calls that all parties take urgent measures to de-escalate.
