Situation in Yemen is sensitive and unpredictable, Benomar says

SANA’A, Oct. 02 (Saba) – The Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on Yemen described on Wednesday the situation in Yemen as sensitive and unpredictable.

Jamal Benomar left Sana’a on Thursday concluding his thirty-third visit to Yemen. "This 3-week visit was not an easy one, as Sana’a witnessed bloody events," he said in a Facebook post.

"Yemen is still in the midst of sensitive and unpredictable times," he said, adding that the only way forward for the success of the peaceful change project that started in 2011 is the rapid implementation of the Peace and National Partnership Agreement and outcomes of the National Dialogue Conference that Yemenis have agreed on.

Benomar said that he is heading for Saudi Arabia on an official visit, stressing "I will continue my efforts to support Yemen in these difficult circumstances."

During the visit, Benomar met with leaders of the political parties and components to trigger the completion of the transitional stage and the implementation of the outcomes of the national dialogue conference.

The UN envoy also attended the signing ceremony of the UN-brokered peace and national partnership agreement, which was signed by the political components in Yemen on September 21.
