Hadi’s government  rejects UN envoy’s draft peace proposals

The Yemen internationally recognized government announces its rejection of recent proposals for peace in Yemen that suggested by the UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths.

“We have officially informed the [UN] envoy today that the proposals he had sent to us on June 30 undermines the government’s sovereignty and clearly exceeds his mission as a special envoy of the UN Secretary-General,” the Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper quoted a Yemeni government spokesman as saying.

Griffiths met two weeks ago with the exiled Yemeni President, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, and handed him a draft proposal of a joint declaration of a comprehensive solution in Yemen after making amendments to it at the Houthis’ request.

The draft joint declaration consists of a comprehensive ceasefire, followed by humanitarian and economic measures.
