A Saudi-Omani delegation is planning to travel to Yemen’s capital Sanaa next week to hash out a permanent ceasefire deal with officials there and end the eight-year aggression on the impoverished country, two sources involved in the talks said.
If an agreement is reached, Yemen’s warring parties could announce an agreement before Eid al-Fitr holiday starting April 20, the sources said.
The discussions are focused on a full reopening of Yemen’s ports and airports, payment of wages for public employees, a rebuilding process and a political transition, they added.
On March 25, 2015, the Saudi-led coalition, which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait started an aggression on Yemen
Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
