Yemen breakthrough in Kuwait talks
Significant progress has been made in the Kuwait talks surrounding Yemen’s military and security arrangements a govt source has said
Significant progress has been made in the Kuwait talks surrounding Yemen’s military and security arrangements, including arrangements on how to secure the war-torn country’s capital, a government source has said following meetings with the UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
The unnamed source added that there were now “understandings” for the discussion of details surrounding the formation of a government, following the completion of arrangements for military withdrawals.
The source said the discussions between the government delegation and the UN envoy addressed the abolition of the constitutional declaration announced by the militias, and its administrative repercussions, as well as the restoration of state institutions. They also addressed the removal of all obstacles detracting from the work of the government, following the withdrawal from the cities in accordance to plans put forward by the UN envoy.
The first designated regions to be included in the withdrawal plans are the capital Sana'a and the governorates of Amran, Hodeidah. But there are further discussions taking place over adding two other regions for the withdrawal of militias.
Sources said they were expecting the UN envoy would present his comprehensive plan, drawn up with ambassadors of the Security Council, to both sides involved in the conflict within the coming days.
Sources have said Yemen has achieved a breakthrough in the ongoing Kuwait talks, agreeing on the formation of a transitional government, but have failed to reach an agreement on the date for this body to be formed.
The legitimate government representatives have suggested that the military committee finish its task of overseeing the militia withdrawal from cities and collecting weapons.
