Abdullah Alimi, head of the Yemeni government advisory delegation in Kuwait, has described talks with rebels as “difficult and complex”, adding that the distance between the two parties is still wide.

“We need something like a miracle to bring the gap closer and come up with fair solutions according to the agreed upon references,” Alimi said on his official Twitter account.

However, Alimi stressed that the government delegation will not give up and will continue working as directed by Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

“The State of Kuwait and the GCC countries, notably Saudi Arabia, and the United Nations and the 18 countries are making great efforts for the success of consultations,” Alimi said.

Alimi’s remarks come as Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, the UN’s special envoy to Yemen, is scheduled to brief the Security Council on Tuesday on the latest developments regarding the Yemeni peace consultations, which entered their third month in Kuwait.
