Global Geopolitical Series: Yemeni government calls for peace talks to end bloody civil war

Speaking at the United Nations’ conference in Geneva, Yemen’s foreign minister on behalf of his government called for peace talks to resume to end the deadly civil war that has left hundreds dead, raging in its fourth year, and left 22 million people in urgent need of aid and assistance. For the past four years, Saudi Arabia backed government forces have been fighting Iran backed Houthi rebels.

In a bid to end the raging hostility, Yemeni foreign minister Abdel-Malek al-Mekhlafi said, “We need to find the ideal solution, which is a return to the talks table”, and pushed forward the idea of opening air and sea ports for humanitarian aid supplies.

Speaking at the conference on Tuesday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appealed to the warring sides in Yemen war to reach a political settlement in order to end the conflict.
