The U.N. envoy for Yemen said Wednesday "consultations" in Geneva between the warring parties offered a "flickering signal of hope" after years of conflict. The talks will be the first public meetings between the government of Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi and Yemen's powerful Houthi rebels since 2016, when 108 days of negotiations in Kuwait failed to broker a power-sharing deal.That meeting is expected to take place in a Geneva hotel, as are any other meetings that might happen Thursday.Griffiths emphasized that the Geneva talks were "not formal negotiations," but said that they aimed to pave the way toward bringing the parties back to the negotiating table.
