Alsahwa Net- The Deputy Foreign Minister of Kuwait, Khaled Al-Jarallah renewed on Tuesday his country’s readiness to host any talks on Yemen that would cease the ongoing war in Yemen.
Kuwait hosted in April 2016 the United Nations (UN) sponsored peace talks on Yemen in an attempt to resolve the devastating conflict. Yet, the talks then could not end the war that started early 2015 between the Iran-backed Houthi rebels and the Saudi-backed internationally recognized government.
Al-Jarallah reiterated that his country is still prepared to host further talks on Yemen to come to an urgent agreement to resolve the Yemen issue.
The Five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Kuwait, Germany and Sweden expressed in a joint statement released on 27 September 2019, their support for UN-led efforts to hold new round of peace talks among parties to the war in Yemen.
