Emir of Kuwait, UN envoy discuss latest developments on Yemen crisis

Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah received here on Sunday United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths and his accompanying delegation.

According to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA), the UN envoy briefed the emir of Kuwait on the latest developments and communications related to the Yemeni crisis.

Griffiths left Sana'a on Friday after failing to persuade the Houthi militias to surrender Hodeidah and return to negotiations.

The UN envoy had been pushing to relaunch peace talks between the legitimate Yemeni government and the Houthis for the past few weeks. His visit to Sana'a followed meetings with Yemeni government officials in Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh on July 22.
