RIYADH – Yemen’s Houthi group said on Monday that calls from the United Nations for a truce in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan were “a positive step”.

U.N. Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg said on Sunday he was discussing a possible truce during Ramadan, which starts in April, for Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is battling the Houthi group.

“We see U.N. envoy calls for a humanitarian truce as a positive step,” the movement’s spokesman Mohammed Abdussalam said.
