UN Special Envoy's visit to Muscat
The UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, was in Muscat yesterday 27 May. He met with Mohammed Abdel Salam, the chief negotiator of Ansar Allah. He also met with senior Omani officials. He discussed the UN plan to open Sana’a airport and lift restrictions on Hudaydah ports to enhance the freedom of movement of people and commodities to and from Yemen, achieve a nationwide ceasefire, and commit the parties to the relaunch of a political process to end the conflict.
"My recent meetings, as well as the continued international and regional support, show that the parties could still seize this opportunity and make a breakthrough towards resolving the conflict," Mr. Griffiths said.
