UNITED NATIONS, April 17. /TASS/. Russia regrets the resignation of UN envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar and hopes a worthy replacement for him will be selected at an early date, Russia’s Permanent Mission to the UN told TASS on Thursday.
"We are sorry about the resignation of Jamal Benomar. We believe that he did a good job and hope that a worthy replacement for him will be selected as soon as possible," the mission’s press secretary Alexey Zaitsev said.
Benomar’s resignation who was appointed to the position in 2012, was formally announced on Thursday. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that he was searching for a new envoy who would deal with the political solution to the conflict.
The Moroccan envoy is likely to be replaced by Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed of Mauritania, who currently heads the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response.
