Houthis refuse to meet as Yemen negotiations stall

Published December 18th, 2015 - 01:54 GMT

Peace talks between Yemen's warring parties have been indefinitely halted after members of the Houthi rebel delegation suspended all negotiations in protest of ceasefire violations committed by forces loyal to embattled President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, the Associated Press reported.

Officials speaking to the AP on Friday said the Houthi delegation refused to participate in future talks unless the UN condemned breaches of a week-long truce. Violations of the ceasefire have been reported from both sides.

The violent conflict in Yemen pits Houthi rebels against forces loyal to ousted President Hadi, backed by a coalition of Arab states led by Said Arabia and supported by the United States.
