Hans Grundberg, Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen, said, "I want the parties to the conflict to not only renew the truce but crucially to commit to taking steps towards a comprehensive resolution of the conflict." Addressing the Security Council today (22 Nov), the Special Envoy provided an overview of the situation in Yemen following the formal expiration of the truce on 2 October and briefed on the current mediation efforts and the way forward. Grundberg stated that addressing urgent humanitarian and economic issues is needed in the immediate term to avoid the situation for civilians to deteriorate further, but more durable solutions can only be reached in the context of a comprehensive settlement of the conflict.  According to Grundberg, many of the economic issues being discussed, such as the issue of revenue management for the payment of salaries, require cooperation between the parties to be sustainable.
