UN Security Council to hold session on Yemen Thursday

It is set that the UN Special Envoy to Yemen Esmail Ould Cheikh Ahmed will brief the UN Security Council on Yemen's updates today, Thursday. 

Ould Cheikh will give the council outcomes of his trip to Riyadh, Doha, Muscat, Aden and Sana'a. He will also present his vision to resume Yemeni negotiations. 

Ould Cheikh had met President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi in the city port of Aden and discussed with him the ways to resume the negotiaions. 

Hadi put the condition of resuming the negotiations on the basis of the reference terms which include the GCC-brokered initiative, the UN Resolutions on Yemen, and the outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference. 

The Yemeni government officially objected meetings of Ould Cheikh with people who were appointed by ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh as ministers. 

Foreign Minister Abdul-Malik al-Mikhlafi told the government-run Saba News Agency that meetings of Ould Cheikh with some officials in Sana'a contradicted his obligations.  

Ould Cheikh held a meeting with Hisham Sharaf who was appointed by Saleh as a foreign minister.

Ould Cheikh had remarked that he met Sharaf as an official of the General People's Congress, pointing out that the international community only recognizes the legitimate government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.  

However, Militias of the Houthis and ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh has stated that the UN Special Envoy to Yemen met Hisham Sharaf as a foreign minister, not as an official of the General People's Congress. 

The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Yemen Abdul al-Malik al-Mikhlafi told the government-run Saba News Agency that the meeting of Ould Cheikh with some people in Sana'a contradicted his obligations. 

Al-Mikhlafi, said in a press statement the UN envoy’s meetings in Sana'a were unacceptable and inconsistent with his obligations as an envoy

U.N. special envoy to Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed arrived on Sunday in Sana’a where he is expected to meet with representatives from the Houthis and former president Ali Abdullah Saleh’s supporters as part of his tour to push Yemeni parties to accept the eighth ceasefire, ahead of reviving a new round of negotiations.
