Griffith: Through the Geneva consultations, we seek a definitive solution to the conflict in Yemen

The UN envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, said he is seeking, through the upcoming negotiations in Geneva, between the Yemeni government and the Houthis, to reach a definitive solution to the Yemeni crisis.

"The most important thing the Geneva talks will focus on next week is to build upon what we saw during the previous talks (in order to find a definitive solution to the conflict and to restore life to Yemen, " he said, quoted by Sky News as saying.

The two parties involved in the peace talks in Geneva were willing to resolve the conflict, he said.

"The last three rounds have progressed, but they have not been enough," he said. The main task we hope to achieve is to understand the aspirations of the two parties and to find out how much they are committed to the framework of the talks, and accordingly, we will draw some outputs. "

He added, "We will learn from the mistakes of the past and its positive lessons and we will try to move forward with these conversations,".

Griffiths revealed that the parties whose presence was confirmed next week were "a delegation from the Yemeni government as well as a delegation from Sana'a (the Houthis)."

With regard to the conditions that may be put on the table, the international envoy explained that there are always "secret measures to be discussed during all conflicts, adding," We want to make progress through the release of prisoners and to build trust between the parties. "
