The two warring sides in Yemen have agreed to withdraw their troops from the restive port city of Hodeida, with a cease-fire extending across the entire province, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said Thursday. The agreement capped weekslong peace talks that took place in Sweden. As part of the deal, the UN will establish humanitarian corridors and deploy supervised neutral forces to the city. “This is just the beginning,” Guterres said, thanking the Yemeni delegations for taking an important step in the peace talks.
