    Background: ROYALIST AND REPUBLICAN DELEGATIONS FROM YEMEN ARE IN BEIRUT FOR A MEETING OF A TRIPARTITE COMMITTEE SET UP BY SUDAN, IRAQ AND MOROCCO. BUT EVEN BEFORE A PREPARATORY MEETING COULD BE STARTED, BOTH SIDES LAID DOWN CONDITIONS THAT COULD JEOPARDISE EFFORTS TO END THE CIVIL WAR THAT HAS TORN YEMEN FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS.

    THE LEADER OF THE ROYALIST DELEGATION, PRINCE ABDEL RAHMAN BEN YEHIA, SAID YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) THAT HE WOULD MEET ONLY THE MEMBERS OF THE TRIPARTITE COMMITTEE. HE COMPLAINED THAT ROYALIST REPRESENTATION ON THE PREPARATORY COMMITTEE, WHICH IT IS HOPED WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR A NATIONAL RECONCILIATION CONFERENCE, IS TOO LOW.

    AND THE LEADER OF THE REPUBLICAN DELEGATES, DR. ABDEL RAHMAN AL BAIDANI, SAID HE WOULD NOT MEET EVEN THE PREPARATORY COMMITTEE UNTIL ALL ITS MEMBERS HAD BEEN VETTED, SAYING THAT SOME OF THEM WERE WHAT HE CALLED ROYALISTS CLAIMING TO BE REPUBLICANS.

    THE TRIPARTITE COMMITTEE MEANWHILE CALLED FOR AN IMMEDIATE CEASEFIRE IN YEMEN, AND CALLED ON THE VARIOUS FACTIONS TO CONVENE THE PREPARATORY COMMITTEE.
