U.N. Yemen envoy to invite warring parties to Geneva on Sept. 6

The United Nations Yemen mediator said on Thursday he plans to invite the warring parties to Geneva on Sept. 6 to discuss a framework for peace talks and confidence-building measures as he tries to negotiate an end to the more than three-year conflict, Reuters has said.
A Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015, backing government forces fighting the Iran-allied Houthi militia. Iran has denied supplying weapons to the Houthis despite the multiple proofs, pictures and videos, that asserted the militia is generously backed by Iran, let alone the common ideological background.
During a U.N. Security Council briefing, U.N. mediator Martin Griffiths called on the parties to create a conducive environment to allow the Geneva consultations to take place.
 “I am very conscious that each day costs lives which might have been saved,” Griffiths said.
