Yemen? Not Today Thank you

I reluctantly declined the UN's invitation to attend their eGovernment workshop in Sana'a, in the Republic of Yemen. The Foreign Office and the Embassy there advised me that it would be unwise to go unless absolutely necessary and when I asked the UN is they could guarantee my personal security on the visit - the not being shot at part - they sent back the following reply.

'The United Nations accepts no responsibility for the death, illness or injury of any consultant or participant in an advisory meeting which is not attributable to the performance of services on behalf of the United Nations'.

I think that means 'No', don't you?
