KUWAIT, 31st May, 2016 (WAM) — UN Special Envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, has expressed concerns about violations of the cessation of hostilities by some parties in Yemen.

“Stabilising the situation is a fundamental demand of the Yemeni people. Violations to the cessation of hostilities are unacceptable and security has an impact on all,” Cheikh Ahmed said in a press statement last night, according to Kuwait’s News Agency, KUNA.

He underlined that political bickering would complicate the situation and urged Yemeni parties to do more to reach the aspired peaceful solution to the Yemeni crisis.

The UN envoy noted that security issues dominated the discussions in the Yemeni peace talks.
