SANAA, Jan. 12 – UN Secretary General's special envoy to Yemen Jamal bin Omar arrived on Thursday in Sana’a for a several-day visit to evaluate progress in implementing the Gulf-brokered initiative and UN security Council resolution 2014.

In a press statement, Omar said that the purpose of his visit is to evaluate the situation in Yemen.

"A report on how far the UN Security Council's resolution has been implemented will be submitted in a UN meeting that will be held on January 25," Omar pointed out.

Omar stressed that, during his visit, he will meet with governmental and non-governmental parties, different Yemeni blocs, and organizations for a closer look on the situation in the country and for an idea on how to overcome obstacles impeding implementation of the initiative and the resolution.

"There is a clear move forward in the political process; yet there are still some hurdles and challenges that need to be addressed through open dialogue amongst the country's political bodies," Omar clarified. (PNA/Saba) RMA/LAP/rsm
