The Yemeni government and the Houthi militant group have agreed and without conditions to go to Geneva talks scheduled for June 14th.
The talks will be sponsored by the UN and, at them, the Yemenis will find a peaceful solution to the post-Houthi takeover conflict.
Observers see the dialog between Yemenis amid ongoing war which has triggered a humanitarian catastrophe as a good idea.
However, many are skeptical about the real objectives and whether a solution will be produced in Geneva or not amid reports about suspicious US contribution to solving the crisis.
The reasons for skepticism appear objective especially the one saying the people who caused problems after the UN-sponsored national dialog conference are not expected to solve them.
Fuad Alsalahi, a political sociology professor at Sanaa University, said the Yemeni factions always prove they seek wars and spread chaos for the sake of their own interests including shares within government.
"I don't think the Geneva talks will find a practically effective solution to the situation in Yemen because there is nothing has changed in reality with which we can say our factions have changed as well," Alsalahi said.
"Yemenis have held talks several times the latest the Riyadh conference last month; in each time, the talks turn to be unproductive," he added.
Some skeptics argued that the transition and peace processes in Yemen are based on flawed international initiatives and efforts primarily the Gulf Initiative.
The initiative was signed in late 2011 following mass protests and it guaranteed the relinquish of power from of the former president to his deputy.
However, it gave the former president and his aides immunity from prosecution and, above that, it gave the former ruling party a 50% share in the government.
Observers said the initiative was unfair and paved the way for further external interference and that's why the transition process has failed.
Meanwhile, some observers said the Geneva talks appear to be a scheme to save the Houthi militants who ousted the transition government and expanded by force across the country.
The militants have been exhausted and have received devastated blows during the confrontations with the pro-government resistance and Saudi-led airstrikes.
However, observers said, violence persists a problem which gives some countries the opportunity to insist on bringing the Yemeni factions into dialog again.
The militants have been fighting in all cities and they will use their expansion as a card to achieve political gains through the Geneva talks and that's it, they added.
Another problem with the talks lies in the nature of the Houthis who usually take advantage of talks and ceasefires to rearrange for coup against deals and outcomes of dialog.
Najeeb Ghallab, a politics professor at Sanaa University, said the talks should lead to national reconciliation before any pardon as well as guarantees the Houthis will adhere to the implantation of what all agree on in Geneva.
"The international community and Yemenis need to learn from the past's lessons and reveal guarantees for the adherence of all transparently," he said.
