The United Arab Emirates, a leading member of a pro-government coalition fighting in Yemen, said Wednesday it supports a UN plan for peace talks to be held in Sweden by the year’s end.

“We welcome early convening of UN-led talks in Sweden,” the UAE state minister for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, tweeted in English.

Gargash said the pro-government coalition would “urge all parties to take advantage of window of opportunity to restart the political process” at a UN Security Council meeting on Friday.

“We look forward to hosting (UN Yemen envoy) Martin Griffiths this week in Abu Dhabi,” Gargash added.
