The United Nations announced that the peace talks between Yemeni government representatives and a rebel delegation will begin on Thursday in Sweden.

“The (UN special envoy) would like to announce the restart of the intra-Yemeni political process in Sweden on 6 December 2018,” UN envoy Martin Griffiths’ office tweeted.

A 12-member government delegation, led by Yemeni Foreign Minister Khaled al-Yamani, arrived in Stockholm on Wednesday evening, one day after a rebel delegation flew in from Sanaa -- accompanied by the UN envoy.
