Alsahwa Net- The UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths has said that he plans to restart peace talks between the Yemeni legitimate government and the Iran-backed Houthi rebels before the end of 2018.
In an interview with Al Arabiya, he anticipated that the talks will be held at the end of November in Geneva or Vienna.
The last round of talks which scheduled to be held in last September failed as the Houthis refused to attend after they told Griffiths that will participate.
