KUWAIT, July 17 (KUNA) -- Sanaa delegation, which represents Yemen's Ansarullah movement and General People's Congress, has reiterated commitment towards the int'l efforts to mediate a comprehensive peace deal to end the current crisis in the country.
In a press statement, the two delegations stressed the talks should be based on the previously agreed points.
They laid it bare that "any other agendas or diversions in this regard would not be accepted." They noted that they have made additional consultations during the past two weeks upon requests from the UN envoy to Yemen and the State of Kuwait with a view to giving impetus to talks benefiting from the progress achieved in the first round.
The UN envoy has also visited a number of regional countries for the same purpose.
He noted the main goal of these efforts is to help reach a comprehensive and integrated political deal to end the deadlock.
Earlier, Kuwait's Acting Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah met the UN Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmad, Yemeni Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and head of the Yemeni government delegation Abdulmalak Al-Mikhlafi and Sanaa delegation.
During the meeting, Sheikh Sabah Al-Khaled urged both sides to redouble their efforts and seize the chance to bring to a halt the conflict in Yemen, promote peace and restore Yemen's stability.
Meanwhile, the UN envoy held Sunday meetings with the delegations of the Yemeni Ansarullah movement and the General People's Congress and the delegation representing the Yemeni government.
Ould Cheikh Ahmad discussed with the Yemeni stakeholders a host of political, security and humanitarian topics on the agenda of the "Kuwait consultations," in addition to the safeguards sought by the government delegation, namely acknowledgement of the legitimacy of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the UN Resolution 2216.
The UN-brokered intra-Yemeni peace talks resumed in Kuwait Saturday after a two-week suspension. The talks first began in Kuwait on April 21. (Pickup previous) hrz.nma.ibi
