The UN Security Council holds on Tuesday a closed-door consultations session on escalation in Yemen, at the request of Britain.

The British Ambassador to Yemen, Michael Aaron, said in an interview with Al-Arabiya Al-Hadath TV on Monday evening that the members of the UN Security Council have three important issues in their closed session on Yemen.

He explained that the members will discuss stopping the recent escalation in Nehm district, east of the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, re-calm between Saudi Arabia and the Houthi group (Ansar Allah), and implementing the Riyadh agreement signed between the Yemeni internationally recognized government and the UAE-backed Armed Southern Transitional Council STC.

The United Nations Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths renewed in a statement Monday evening his call to reduce the escalation of violence and reach a peaceful solution to the conflict in Yemen.

In the statement, Griffiths stressed that Yemen deserves better than life in an endless war.
