Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah received the United Nations Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths and discussed the latest efforts and developments regarding the conflict.

Kuwait plays the central pivot for us and for peace in Yemen, Griffiths was quoted as saying by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Sunday.

"I have lived a long life and the inspiration that we have received just now from His Highness is a moment that I will never forget and in many parts of the world where conflict happens as it does in your region, to find a man who is so dedicated to peace and whose own experience has shown as he was telling us how reconciliation and peace can overcome enmity and difference, it's remarkable and absolutely extraordinary," Griffiths said.

"I don't think we will succeed in Yemen in stopping this war and bringing political resolution to it without the help and experience of Kuwait. The fact is that two years ago, His Highness and his government hosted 100 days of talks on Yemen and those talks, while they didn't produce peace then, are the defining narrative for the peace that we hope to bring to Yemen in the course of the next month,” Griffiths added.
