RIYADH: Yemen’s exiled government might not attend peace talks the United Nations plans in Geneva on 28 May because it has not been officially notified and wants more time to prepare, Foreign Minister Reyad Yassin Abdulla said on Wednesday.

“We didn’t get an official invitation. It’s very short notice. If it happens, it shouldn’t be on May 28,” he said by phone, adding that any talks that involved the Houthi rebels should depend on them abiding by a UN resolution requiring them to disarm.
