The United Nations said on Tuesday that the U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon asked his special envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed to postpone the Yemen peace talks.
Geneva Peace talk was planned to be held on the 28th of May, and aimed to find solution to end the war in Yemen as soon as possible.
The U.N. spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said that Ban Ki-moon is disappointed that they were able to meet the planned date and start this important step. He also renewed his call to all parties asking them to participate in the U.N peace talks with good faith and without any preconditions.
An alternative date for the peace talks has not been set yet, while the Saudi-led coalition continue to target Houthi military bases, and clashes are still ongoing in various cities between Popular Resitance and Houthi militants and forces loyal to the Ex President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
