No suspension to Yemeni talks in Kuwait -- UN source

KUWAIT, May 7 (KUNA) -- A source close to the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed has denied reports about alleged suspension of Kuwait-hosted, UN-medidated Yemeni peace talks.
The Yemeni peace consultations are proceeding, the source told KUNA, denying media reports about a decision to suspend the talks.
"It is normal that consultations sessions could undergo some difficulties, but they are proceeding," he clarified.
The statement came in response reports that the UN Envoy has decided to suspend the Intra-Yemeni talks over differences among negotiators over the issues on the agenda.
Earlier, Yemeni negotiators held a second session of peace talks for the seventh day in row in a bid to find a solution to the Yemeni crisis.
The delegations, which represent the Yemeni government, the General People's Congress and Ansarullah movement, focused on a host of political, security and economic issues and exchanged views on a UN-proposed general framework for a comprehensive peace settlement.
Last week, the UN envoy for Yemen received two documents bearing on visions for security and political issues, militia withdrawal, weapons and prisoners. (Pick up previous) rkf.nma.ibi
