International calls for a ceasefire in Yemen and a negotiated settlement of the ongoing Saudi war have stalled, apparently along disputes between Yemeni factions over how the peace talks would take place.
The Houthis, who are presently in control of much of Yemen, say they want an end to Saudi strikes and the naval blockade of the country as a condition for talks about a settlement.
The remnants of the former Hadi government, backed by the Saudis, are setting preconditions on the Houthis demanding effectively their complete surrender, including a full disarmament of the faction and the surrender of all cities to Hadi forces.
The Saudi government has insisted they don’t see the need for talks at all, and that the war will continue until the Houthis are destroyed and Hadi has been reinstalled in power.
