UN envoy calls for immediate start of Yemen national dialogue
[24/November/2012]
SANA'A, Nov. 24 (Saba)- United Nations special adviser on Yemen Jamal Bin Omar has said that preparations for the start of the national dialogue must end.

In a press statement on the occasion of the first anniversary of Yemen’s peace and transition agreement, Bin Omar said "the road towards this agreement took courage and persistence on the part of all involved. The road ahead is no less difficult".

He expressed his confident that "common efforts to help those in Yemen aspiring for a better future will be successful, despite the challenges lying ahead", adding remarkable progress has indeed been achieved throughout this past year.

Bin Omar went on to say that the November agreement provided for a clear path for fundamental reforms of Yemen’s governance systems as well as for addressing past wrongs, recognition of the role played by the youth, with a clear roadmap to secure their participation during the transition in a way that meets their aspirations, the opportunity for Yemenis to reclaim their destiny and establish a new constitutional order and full representation of women throughout the transitional process.

The UN official called on all Yemeni political leaders and the preparatory committee of the national dialogue to address the pending issues.

"Its success requires bold steps to reassure all Yemenis that their aspirations will be met", Bin Omar pointed out.

"It has been an inspiration to see women, youth, civil society, together with representatives of political parties, Houthis and Southern representatives participating constructively in the Committee. This is undoubtedly the beginning of the new Yemen".

Bin Omar recommitted to working with all political players as well as the international community to ensure the speedy launch of the National Dialogue Conference and equally to support a successful transition through the subsequent constitution drafting, referendum and elections in early 2014.
