Yemeni political crisis solution still possible, UN official says

SANAA, July 29 (Saba) - UN Secretary General's Envoy Jamal Ben Omar said Friday that the solution for the Yemeni political crisis was still possible.

"I urge Yemeni various parties to reach an agreement immediately that is acceptable to all sides to put an end to the crisis", Omar told a news conference organized by United Nations Information Centre (UNIC).

Any solution should meet the Yemeni people's aspirations, the UN official said.

He stressed that the Yemeni political powers should make an agreement on how to enter a transitional period as soon as possible.

Omar warned of aggravating the current political and economic situations in Yemen that led to deteriorate the humanitarian situation.

"It is time for the various political parties' leaders to make crucial decisions ending the crisis and avoiding the state's deterioration in Yemen", he said.

Few days ago, Omar described in press conference the situation in Yemen as "very dangerous," and would threaten regional and international peace and security.

Having a transitional period was not possible without solving the outstanding issues between the government and the opposition, he said.

The envoy, who met with all conflicting parties, said he would convey what he saw in Yemen to the UN Security Council.

Omar stressed that there was no new initiative or proposals by the UN Secretary General.
