The UN-brokered negotiation between the Yemeni government and Houthi rebels were renewed in Kuwait City on Monday, a source at the negotiations told Sputnik.

DUBAI (Sputnik) – The morning session included common consultations and was limited to addresses from delegation heads, the source said.

The talks between the delegations and UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed are expected to continue in the evening.

The peace negotiations were halted on May 17 by the Yemeni government because of disagreements over how the military leadership in the transition period would be formed.

In September 2014, Houthi rebels supported by army units loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh rose against the country's government and seized large territories, including the capital of Sanaa.

In March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition launched an airstrike campaign against the Houthis. A number of attempts to establish a UN-brokered ceasefire in Yemen have so far failed.
