Hopes for peace in Yemen as govt, separatists agree to halt fighting

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — Yemen’s internationally-recognised government has signed a power-sharing agreement with separatists in the south.

The deal was brokered by Saudi Arabia – and aims to end months of violence between government forces and UAE-backed fighters.

The standoff was complicated by the fact that the UAE and Saudi were fighting with the government against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in other parts of Yemen.

And the Saudis’ battle against the Houthis has yet to end.
