UN Official Commends Parties To Yemen Peace Talks In Sweden For Constructive Participation
The Yemeni government and the Houthis have had constructive discussions and made several settlement proposals during their ongoing consultations on the country's peace process in Sweden, a UN official told reporters on Friday.
"Both delegations are very constructive. [Discussion] was mostly focused on humanitarian issues today. They submitted a few proposals to us," the official said.
The official added that the proposals were being discussed and presented to both sides.
Yemen has been ravaged by almost four years of war between an internationally backed government, aided by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Houthi rebels that has pushed half the country's population to the brink of starvation. An attempt to begin formal negotiations failed in September after Houthis said they were barred from leaving the country.
