The Secretary-General is alarmed by the escalation of airstrikes and ground fighting in Yemen and along the Saudi Arabia-Yemen border since the end of talks in Kuwait on 6 August.
I am grateful for the opportunity to brief the Security Council once again on progress in the Kuwait talks and on the prospects for Yemen’s return to peace.
Today I am providing this briefing from Kuwait, two months after the launch of the peace talks.
Kuwait - It has been a long week of sessions, in which we discussed a wide range of issues. Some sessions were promising and others tense. In spite of all of the challenges we are facing, the United Nations remains deeply committed to finding a peaceful solution.
