Member of the Yemeni government delegation to Stockholm-hosted peace talks on Yemen Rana Ghanem said that the Houthi militias are not serious about reaching an agreement to end the Yemeni conflict.

The Houthis did not show genuine intentions about ending the deepening Yemeni crisis and are still clinging to their position that is hindering the negotiations, Al Arabiya news channel quoted Ghanem as saying on Sunday.

Yemeni Foreign Minister Khaled al-Yamani said earlier that the strategic city of Hudeidah, which is a main point of entry for almost all of Yemen's commercial goods and aid, should return to the Yemeni government's full control after the Houthis proposed to make it a neutral zone.
