UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths welcomed recent calls for the resumption of the political process to reach a cessation of hostilities in the war-torn country.

Griffiths added that he will continue to work with all parties to agree on steps to resolve the crisis in Yemen, a press statement issued by his office on Wednesday has noted.

The UN envoy likewise urged all parties to seize the opportunity to agree on a framework for political negotiations and confidence-building measures.

He stressed the continued commitment to bring together the Yemeni parties at the negotiating table and that dialogue remained the only way to reach a comprehensive agreement.

Griffiths likewise expressed his optimism about the positive involvement of the Yemeni government, the Houthi militias and other parties concerned to reach a political settlement to end the conflict in Yemen.
