Outcome of Yemen peace consultations to be conveyed to UN on Friday

The Sanaa airport agreement between the Houthis and the Yemeni government failed on Thursday due to the militia's inflexibility, a source told Al Arabiya TV.  

UN chief Antonio Guterres led his mediators on Thursday in a last-minute push for a truce in Yemen's war as the Houthis and the government wrangled over Hodeidah port and Sanaa airport.
The warring parties have been in the rural Swedish village of Rimbofor UN-brokered talks, now in their seventh day, working for an agreement on key issues including a cessation.
Sources in both delegations said no agreement had been reached on Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom said the outcome of Yemen’s peace consultations will be conveyed to the UN Security Council on Friday.

The consultations, which started last week near Stockholm, took place in “positive spirit and good faith,” she said in a telephone interview with Reuters.
