EU calls on Yemenis to return to talks' table

BRUSSELS, Oct 9 (KUNA) - The EU has urged parties in Yemen to return to the negotiation table and offered its full support to the efforts of UN Special Envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed to find a political solution.
"The people of Yemen deserve a return to peace" said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini in a statement late Saturday.
She noted that "the horrific attack" on a funeral gathering in Sanaa yesterday has provoked a terrible loss of life among mourners and family members and left many injured. "Those responsible for the attack must be identified and held accountable. But it's not enough. The parties, the regional and international actors should engage without any further delays to put an end to the war," she added.(end) nk.ag
