RIYADH (Reuters) – The United Nations welcomes moves by Yemen’s warring factions to temporarily halt military operations and urges them to engage in UN-led peace efforts “without preconditions”, the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General said on Wednesday.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi group in Yemen had announced it would halt military operations from Wednesday after the Iran-allied movement this week declared a three-day halt to cross-border attacks and ground offensives in Yemen.

The unilateral initiatives followed a UN call for a ceasefire during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and as Saudi Arabia hosted allied Yemeni factions for week-long consultations in Riyadh on Wednesday.
