Yemeni parties initially agree to extend truce

2022-07-31 | Since 10 Month

Dubai (Debriefer) Parties to the Yemeni conflict have initially agreed to extend the UN-brokered truce set to expire on 2 August, Yemeni and UN sources said on Friday.
The United Nations made advanced progress towards extending the truce, but has yet to obtain agreement on the term of this extension or on the files to be discussed during the extended truce, the sources said in remarks carried by al-Bayan paper.
The UN is also studying options to connect Sana'a airport to more destinations, in addition to Amman and Cairo, during the extended truce, deputy spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, Farhan Haq, said.
The UN pushes for six-month (instead of two-month) new extension, as the Yemeni government asks for full application of terms stated in the initial truce deal (particularly the reopening of Taiz main roads) before discussing new issues.
