He stressed that this can only be achieved through dialogue and political will and compromise on both sides for the benefit of the Yemeni people.
“I have engaged in a fruitful, substantive discussion with President Al Alimi on the way forward that addresses the immediate concerns of Yemenis and advances an inclusive Yemeni- led process under United Nations auspices. I remain committed to supporting a durable resolution to the conflict that reflects the will of the Yemeni people." Mr. Grundberg said.
This visit comes as a part of the Special Envoy’s active engagements in Yemen and the region to promote an agreement that sets Yemen on a path toward an inclusive settlement.
