  • US must be careful not to hand Yemen to Iran

He added that the Saudi-led coalition backing the legitimate government of Yemen and the Houthi militia had shown a "renewed commitment" to work on a political solution and have given "firm assurances" that they will attend the talks, Martin Griffiths told the council.

The bill introduced by Menendez and Graham would also impose United States sanctions on anyone blocking humanitarian aid deliveries to Yemen, but also on anyone providing support to the Houthis. If we have the stoppage of the war, if we can resolve that larger conflict, it gives us a chance to start building peace. A resumption of the operation would likely derail the plan. But it won't stay there. "If we don't address this quickly we will lose it", Mr Griffiths said. "We are prepared to do that, we do not want to do that, but if that's what it takes we will do it", he said.

Griffiths said preparatory issues for the meeting are close to being resolved and he has sent the parties his "vision" for "U.N. -led, inclusive Yemeni negotiations to end the war and restart a political transition process".

The minister went on saying that Washington's calls for an end to the war in Yemen were merely media statements since neither the mercenaries nor the coalition reacted to them.

Griffiths also said the parties were about to conclude an agreement on the exchange of prisoners and detainees.

He welcomed a call last month by Jim Mattis, the U.S. defence secretary, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, for a cessation of hostilities in Yemen and resumption of peace talks.

China hotels red-faced after dirty cleaning practices revealed
A cleaning woman at the Four Seasons in Shanghai was shown using the same sponge to clean the shower, counter and cups. He calls the problem long-standing and widespread and writes that he spent 2,000 nights at 147 hotels over six years.

"This legislation is an important way to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for various acts in Yemen as well as the death of Jamal Khashoggi", said Graham.

The spotlight has fallen on what many viewed as the long forgotten war in Yemen since the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

The almost four-year-old conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and caused a humanitarian disaster that could potentially threaten millions of lives. The Saudi-led coalition has ordered a halt in a log-running offensive against the Houthis in Hudaida, sources said on Thursday. Sky News visits Yemen as starving civilians flee the war there.

He said a complete ceasefire was not necessary for peace talks but significant fighting, for example in Hodeidah, would make meaningful dialogue hard.

"The coalition has instructed forces on the ground to halt fighting inside Hodeidah", said one pro-coalition military source.

"Yemen is on the brink - so together we must act", Beasley said.
