The Houthi alliance has agreed to join the delayed peace talks on the Yemen conflict in Kuwait. The decision was made after the United Nations assured them that the Saudi-led coalition would abide by a ceasefire.

Representatives of the Houthis and the party of Ali Abdullah Saleh are to arrive in Kuwait Wednesday or Thursday.

The negotiations were scheduled on Monday, but only the Saudi-backed delegation showed up.

Representatives of the Houthi alliance stayed home to protest alleged cease-fire violations by the coalition-backed forces.
