> Where there had been hope, now anger in Yemen after UN peace talks collapsed on Saturday. They were aimed at restarting efforts to end the country's ongoing civil war that's killed at least 10,000 people and pushed the country to the brink of famine. Saturday should have been the second day of talks in Geneva.
But while the Saudi-led coalition government delegation had arrived, the rival Houthi movement group was a no-show. They say they were waiting for the UN to confirm that their plane hadn't been inspected by Saudi government forces.>> They would have liked to have got here. We didn't make the condition sufficiently the correct to get them here.
>> The UN vowed to press ahead with the diplomacy. Special envoy Martin Griffiths said, restarting the peace process is a delicate and fragile moment. And the word, the Houthi absence was an elephant in the room, it's not a fundamental deadlock. He also said positive confidence building measures had been discussed with the government like prisoner releases, increasing humanitarian access, and reopening Sana'a Airport.
Already an agreement has been reached for medical evacuations to start in a week with a flight to Kyro.
