Upcoming Peace Talks Between Houthi Militia and Government Might Be in Amman

Another round of negotiations between the legitimate government and the Iran-backed Houthi militia could be hosted “soon” in the Jordanian capital of Amman, according to a leading figure in the militia group following his meeting with the UN envoy on Sunday.

Negotiations on the country’s failed economy “could take place soon in Amman or by video conference, which I discussed with the UN envoy”, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, head of the militia’s so-called Supreme Revolutionary Committee, told AFP in Sanaa.

At least one month after hard-won peace talks on the Yemen conflict, the United Nations faces an uphill battle as it pushes to ensure the warring parties make good on a shaky truce deal.

The United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths, who brokered the breakthrough last month in Sweden, returned to Yemen Saturday with a plan to expedite measures agreed between the legitimate government and Houthi militia.
