UN’s Yemen envoy to present a peace plan to EU on Monday

The United Nations special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, is expected to present to EU foreign ministers next Monday a report on Yemen at a meeting in Luxemburg, Al-Arabiya reported.


Official Sources confirmed to Al Arabiya news channel that the EU supports the peace plan to put an end to the Yemeni conflict, as proposed by Griffiths.


It is expected that the EU foreign ministers will stress on the priorities to avoid targeting Yemeni civilians in Hodeidah port city and hasten plans to bring all concerned parties back to the negotiating table.


Maja Kosigancic, the  spokesperson for EU Foreign Affairs & Security Affairs, said: “We call on all parties involved in the conflict to resume the negotiations as we believe that there is no military solution to the conflict, and any solution to the crisis will only be through negotiation tools under the UN supervision.”


The Arab Coalition’s spokesman, Turki al-Malki, speaking from Brussels in a press conference, had said on Friday that the options for the coalition were numerous and could include a pre-emptive military operation.


The major European countries - France, Italy, Germany and Britain - are trying since February to convince Iran to stop backing the Houthi militias and pressure them to accept a political solution to the conflict and give up on the coup illusions.


All parties are convinced that the military balance is not in the Houthis favor and that the solution cannot be a military one and that the militias should agree to cooperate with the UN special envoy in order to end the suffering of the Yemeni people.
