The Saudi-led Arab coalition said on Thursday it was committed to the ceasefire in Yemen it had declared earlier this week in compliance to an appeal by Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council Dr. Nayef Al-Hajraf.


Al-Hajraf had called for a cessation in military operations as it kicked off intra-Yemeni consultations on Wednesday.


The coalition stressed it was taking all the needed steps to ensure the success of the talks and pave the way for comprehensive peace.


The ceasefire, which went into effect on Wednesday, is aimed at creating the necessary positive environment to ensure the success of the talks.


It will also be observed with the advent of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.
