Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, part of the UN special envoy for Yemen, said in an agreement that the two warring forces in Temen have agreed to an end of hostilities highlights that there is a chance for peace.

“Yemen is now at a critical crossroad,” he told the U.N. Security Council. “One path leads to peace while the other can only worsen the security and humanitarian situation.”

He continued that he has hopes despite “a worrying number of serious violations.”

“On the security front,” Ould Cheikh Ahmed said, “Yemen is facing a brutal war on one hand and a significant terrorist threat on the other.”

The war so far has left over 6400 Yemenis dead including over 2000 children.

Yemen’s U.N. Ambassador Khaled Alyemany told the council “the government has extended an olive branch to promote peace” and in the eyes of the Yemeni people the talks “are the last chance for peace.”
