Talks stall over Ye­meni port han­dover by rebels

The Daily Telegraph - - World news -

Ye­men’s Houthi rebels will not hand over the key port of Hodeida to the gov­ern­ment, a rebel rep­re­sen­ta­tive said yesterday, as the two par­ties met for Un-bro­kered talks in Swe­den.

The Ye­meni gov­ern­ment said it was seek­ing a full Houthi with­drawal from the flash­point port city.

The talks, which opened on Thurs­day, are the first meet­ing be­tween the war­ring par­ties since 2016, when more than three months of ne­go­ti­a­tions in Kuwait failed to yield a break­through in the war.
