UN Envoy to Yemen warns for possibility of military escalation

The UN envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg, on Wednesday, revealed the latest developments in the negotiations to extend the truce in Yemen.

“Any small incident could spark something that could have devastating consequences,” Hans Grundberg said in a statement to Reuters in Amman on Tuesday.

“Luckily, we have not seen a military escalation, and this is so far so good.”

On Sunday, he announced the failure to extend and expand the nationwide truce in Yemen, which had expired on October 2.

In recent days, Western parties, including the United States, have made more than one amendment to Grundberg’s proposals amid fears of repercussions from the failure to extend the truce.
