Yemen ambassador: UN-led Geneva talks to start June 14

Yemen’s ambassador to the United Nations said Wednesday that UN-led talks aimed at ending the conflict in the Middle East’s poorest nation will begin June 14 in Geneva. Ambassador Khaled Alyemany told The Associated Press that the United Nations is expected to officially announce the date shortly.  But there was still some uncertainty among members of the UN Security Council who were briefed behind closed doors by the UN’s new special envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed. “Hopefully the 14th,” Angola’s UN Ambassador Ismael Abraao Gaspar Martins told reporters as he left the council meeting.
