Yemen’s Government to Join Peace Talks with Houthis, CNN Reports

Yemen’s Saudi-backed government confirmed it will participate in United Nations-sponsored peace talks in Sweden, according to CNN, which cited¬†the Saudi Press Agency.

The announcement came shortly before the United Kingdom introduced a draft resolution on Yemen at the UN Security Council on Monday in which it calls for a ceasefire in Yemen and a two-week break in fighting to allow aid into Yemen. The Security Council is expected to continue discussing the draft resolution Tuesday, but a vote on it is not expected until after Thanksgiving, CNN reports.
