London: Britain welcomes a new peace initiative from Saudi Arabia to end the war in Yemen, foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Monday, urging the Houthis to work with their Saudi opponents on ending a six-year war.

The initiative includes a nationwide ceasefire and the reopening of air and sea links.

“I welcome today's announcement by Saudi Arabia on Yemen. A nationwide ceasefire and action to ease humanitarian access restriction are essential. The Houthis must now match the steps toward peace and an end to the suffering of the Yemeni people,” Raab said in a tweet.
