The UN envoy to Yemen announced Saturday that peace talks to end the country’s deadly crisis would go into a one-month recess.

The widely expected announcement came in a statement issued Saturday by the envoy, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed. The talks, held in Kuwait, have failed to make any tangible headway. No venue was announced for the talks when they resume.

“The biggest obstacle we faced is the lack of trust between both parties, despite our efforts,” said the envoy.UN Yemen envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed

“We are leaving Kuwait today, but the peace talks will go on. I want to reiterate that we are on the right path.”

“These talks have helped us to lay a solid ground for an agreement which we hope comes to light soon,” he said in a statement.

“The Kuwait talks have today reached the final stop, but the peace talks for Yemen continue. The structure and mechanism will change during the coming weeks so that we give the parties space to consult with their leaderships.”

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Riyadh launched the campaign against Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis) in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the aggression, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

This is just an excuse to give the Saudis time to regroup. They are trying to recruit 5000 child soldiers from Senegal.
