UN Spokesman: Yemen’s Special Envoy to Step Down Next Month
Local Editor

The United Nations said on Monday that its mediator for Yemen will step down next month after nearly three years trying to end the country's conflict.

Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheik Ahmed

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wants to quickly appoint a new special envoy for Yemen to replace Ould Cheikh Ahmed when his current contract finishes at the end of February, said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

"The Special Envoy remains committed to pursue through diplomacy an end to the violence and a political solution that meets the legitimate aspirations of the Yemeni people, until a successor is named," Dujarric said.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition intervened in Yemen's war in 2015. The country, which relies heavily on imports for food is on the brink of famine and nearly 1 million people had been infected with cholera.

"In this moment, (Ould Cheikh Ahmed‘s) thoughts go first to the Yemeni people who are worn out by this conflict and are enduring one of the most devastating humanitarian crisis in the world," Dujarric said.
