Reuters confirmed, quoting its sources, that a Saudi-Omani delegation intends to travel to Sana’a next week to reach a permanent ceasefire agreement in Yemen.
Reuters quoted its sources as saying that if an agreement is reached, the parties may announce an agreement before the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which begins on April 20.
The agency added, quoting its sources, that the discussions will focus on fully reopening Yemeni ports and airports, paying public servants’ wages, the reconstruction process, and political transition.
Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper had quoted Yemeni sources as saying that the draft comprehensive peace plan for the crisis in Yemen is in its last stages of preparation under UN auspices.
This draft includes 4 stages, the first of which is a comprehensive ceasefire in the country and the opening of all land, air and sea outlets, then the formation of committees to merge the Central Bank and exchange prisoners and detainees, followed by the stage of direct negotiation to establish the form of the state, and finally the transitional stage.
