The United Nation’s envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, landed at Sanaa international airport Monday for talks with Houthi militias ahead of planned peace talks in Sweden this month.
Griffiths is making the trip as part of an intensive diplomatic push for peace talks in the war-torn country.
An AFP photographer at the airport said Griffiths did not take questions on arrival.
Fifty wounded Houthis will also be evacuated from Sanaa for medical treatment Monday, the Arab Coalition supporting the Yemeni government announced.
The coalition's statement also said the facilitation comes within the confidence-building framework between the Yemeni parties to prepare for the upcoming peace talks in Sweden.
