Yemeni truce talks may not launch a peace process

Wednesday, February 22, 2023


Saudi Arabia’s willingness to engage in direct talks with the Huthis reflects the seriousness of efforts to renew the ceasefire. Saudi Arabia’s interest in reaching a positive outcome is underlined by the senior level of the leader involved in negotiations. This is creating optimism that the truce will be renewed.


  • UN Special Envoy Hans Gruenberg will remain engaged and ready to build on Saudi-Huthi contacts.
  • The humanitarian situation is dire, and pledges of international assistance are likely to fall far short of need.
  • Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula will be increasingly active.
