Message by UN Special Envoy for Yemen on the beginning of Ramadan
I would like to extend my best wishes to everyone in Yemen, at the start of the Holy month of Ramadan.
To the people of Yemen: I wish Ramadan brings you its gifts of peace, reconciliation and joy. I hope you will continue to raise your voices to demand peace and to defend your right to a better future.
To the parties to the conflict, I say: be guided by the spirit of the Holy month and put an end to the suffering of your people. Put down the arms. Release all those who lost their liberty due to the conflict. Open humanitarian corridors. Focus on coordinating your efforts to help your country respond to the pandemic outbreak and other emergency needs.
Once again, my best wishes for all. May the spirit of this Holy month inspire and provide the desire, strength, as well as the determination, to achieve durable peace and stability in Yemen.
