AL-MUKALLA: Yemen’s globally recognized Presidential Leadership Council has welcomed the United Nations peace proposal, Arab News reported on Sunday.

According to the media reports, the presidential council’s leader, Rashad Al-Alimi expressed these remarks during a meeting with Egypt’s envoy to Yemen. He said that the government of Yemen was committed to positively complying with UN-brokered peace efforts that would lead to easing the suffering of people of Yemen.

Earlier, the UN Ambassador for Yemen announced that Yemen’s warring parties have made commitment to a new truce and agreed to engage in a United Nations-led peace process to end the crisis.

In a statement, Grundberg said he welcomed the parties’ pledge to a set of steps to execute a ceasefire and to engage in arrangements for the restoration of an inclusive political process.

The statement maintained that the UN envoy would now engage with the parties to set up a road map under United Nations auspices that includes these promises and supports their execution. A UN-brokered truce that took effect in April 2022 brought a sharp decrease in hostilities. The ceasefire expired in October last year, though fighting between the two sides largely remains on hold.
