ADEN, April 10 (KUNA) -- UN special envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths said Friday he sent a UN peace initiative consisting of three proposed agreements to the Yemen government and the Houthi militias.
The three proposed agreements call for a nationwide ceasefire, a series of economic and humanitarian measures to alleviate suffering of the Yemeni people, building confidence, supporting the country's efforts against coronavirus and urgent resumption of political process, Griffiths said in a statement.
The proposed agreements, he said, were balanced and took into consideration basic interests of all parties.
The agreements, he added, were realistic and comprehensive with the objective of ceasing violence, end suffering of the sick and take a historic step towards peace.
Griffiths urged the Yemeni parties to accept the initiative in order to end the war.
Cessation of hostilities has become an immediate necessity following the discovery of the first coronavirus case, he said. (end)
