UN in talks to lift Saudi blockade on Yemen


The United Nations (UN)’s Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson says the world body has been engaged in talks to end the blockade that Saudi Arabia has imposed on impoverished Yemen.

The official made the comments during a Thursday news conference in Geneva, adding that the talks are aimed at opening more ports in Yemen to allow in fuel and other supplies.

He did not specify, however, what individuals, groups or governments the UN has been in talks with over the Saudi blockade.
