stockholm - For the first time since the beginning of the peace talks in Sweden there is direct contact between the warring factions in Yemen. Under pressure from Western mediators, a delegation of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi sat around the table with a delegation of the rebellious Houthis.

The parties have gathered in a castle outside the Swedish capital Stockholm. The delegation of the Yemeni government did not want to enter the castle first, because the Houthi's delegation would not have enough headquarters. But after some insistence, UN envoy Martin Griffiths could open a new round of negotiations.
