Yemen Warring Sides Agree Deal On First Pullback : UN

Yemeni Government and Houthi representatives have reached an agreement on "Phase 1" of their mutual redeployment of forces under a UN-sponsored deal for the warring armies to leave the Yemeni Port City of Hudaida.

The sides made "important progress on planning for the redeployment of forces" but no date was given to begin the Demilitarisation.

The parties also agreed, in principle, on Phase 2 of the mutual redeployment, pending additional consultations within their respective leadership.
