Third day of Yemen peace talks winds up without progress

More than 6,800 people have been killed and 2.8 million displaced by the conflict in Yemen since March 2015A third day of UN-brokered peace negotiations in Kuwait between the Yemeni government and rebels wound up Saturday without progress, sources close to the talks said. UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said in a statement late Saturday the talks had achieved “common ground to build on” but acknowledged that the negotiations were difficult. “We must realise that these difficult negotiations require time because they aim at reaching a solid agreement on a package of contentious issues so that the solution would be comprehensive and hollistic,” Ould Cheikh Ahmed said.
