Yemeni Minister of Foreign Affairs, Khaled al-Yamani, said that the government wasn’t briefed on the details of the consultations that the United Nations envoy Martin Griffiths said it will start in November.

However, he added that a meeting will be held between Yemeni President Aebdrabbo Mansour Hadi and Griffiths to determine the agenda and venue of the consultations.

Yamani welcomed the government’s efforts in principle and its willingness to go to another round of consultations, but insisted that the agenda of the consultations should be approved by President Hadi before leaking them or announcing them.

On the other hand, al-Yamani expressed his appreciation for the positive action by Amman to enable the family of the Minister of Defense detained by the Houthi militias, Mahmoud al-Subaihi, to talk to him, but added that this does not cancel the main government effort, which is to release prisoners, with the support of the UN envoy.
