Al-Murtda : The New UN Envoy Failed to Arrange New Round of Negotiations


The new UN envoy for Yemen failed to arrange a new round of prisoner negotiations, the Head of the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs Abdulqader Al-Mortadha revealed
“The new UN envoy was unable to arrange a new round of negotiations on the prisoners’ issue, despite the readiness of both parties to hold it,” Al-Mortada said in a tweet on his Twitter account.

He added it is clear that the envoy’s mission is “to conduct some visits to the mercenaries’ areas to raise their morale more than anything else.”

“With the failure of the new UN envoy in the prisoners’ issue, how will he work on the most complex military and political issues?,” Al-Mortada wondered.

The UN envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, who took up the post in September, made a visit to Taiz in the country’s southwest. His visit to Taiz is the first for a UN envoy since the start of the US-Saudi aggression on the country 7 years ago.
