The U.S. Embassy Yemen has issued Statement stating that the United States welcomes the announcement that the UN-facilitated talks among Yemenis will begin in Geneva on June 15. “We reiterate the call of the Security Council for Yemenis to attend these consultations in good faith and without preconditions” said the statement.
We urge Yemenis participating in the talks to work towards a rapid resumption of the Yemeni political transition process in line with the GCC Initiative, National Dialogue Conference Outcomes, and related UN Security Council Resolutions.
We are gravely concerned by the dire humanitarian consequence of continuing violence in Yemen. We call upon all to prioritize reaching an agreement to end the fighting and begin the withdrawal of forces from key Yemeni cities.
