SANA'A, July 18 (Saba) - The UN secretary general's envoy to Yemen has said that the various Yemeni parties are competing to take part in the national dialogue.
However, there are some who want to deter the peaceful transfer of power in Yemen, Jamal bin Omar said in a short statement to press following the Security Council's session on Yemen held late on Wednesday.
He said that the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Yemen is currently preparing a new report on the human rights status in Yemen to be submitted to the Human Rights Council.
We at the UN urge the Yemen government to implement the recommendations of the Human Rights Council's resolution via the formation of an independent body to investigate any violations, bin Omar said.
He pointed that the previous government of Yemen has committed publicly to the resolution, but has not achieved any concrete steps.
The Security Council has discussed the latest developments in Yemen and the achieved steps of the political settlement under the Gulf initiative, the UN resolutions 2014 and 2051.
During the closed door session, the council members were listened to a report of the UN envoy in the light of his last two-week visit to the country, which has dedicated to evaluate the achievements and contact with the Yemeni parties to support the arrangements for the national dialogue.
