Alwaght- The United Nations' new envoy for Yemen has said he plans to unveil a new plan to end the war in the impoverished state that has been suffering from Saudi-led aggression for the last four years.

Martin Griffiths told the UN Security Council on Tuesday that he would develop a new framework to re-launch negotiations between Saudi-led coalition and Yemen's Ansarullah resistance movement, also known as Houthis, but warned that fighting on the ground was still fierce.

"My plan is to put to the council within the next two months a framework for negotiations," he said.

The UN envoy noted that a political solution to the conflict in Yemen is available, adding that both Ansarullah and the faction of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi have expressed “constructive attitudes” and their desire for peace talks.

 “A negotiated political settlement through inclusive intra-Yemeni dialogue is the only way to end the Yemeni conflict and address the ongoing humanitarian crisis,” he added.

Griffiths, however, warned that intensified fighting between the warring sides in Yemen could "in a stroke, take peace off the table."

Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Over 14,000 Yemenis have been killed and tens of thousands injured in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them being civilians, especially women and children.

However, the allied forces of the Yemeni army and popular committees established by Ansarullah revolutionaries have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means, inflicting huge losses upon Saudi-led forces and the kingdom's strategic infrastructure including airports and oil production facilities.

The war in Yemen has been described by the UN as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 75 percent of the population, or about 22 million people, in need of aid, while seven million are on the brink of famine.
