SANAA, UN envoy for Yemen arrived in the capital Sanaa on Sunday, just days after the Yemeni warring parties built joint cease-fire observation sites, in the country's port of Hodeidah.
Martin Griffiths is set to hold talks with Houthi rebel leaders, to push forward to fully implement the deal, Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported.
Griffiths arrived from Saudi Arabia, where he met Yemeni government officials over the past two days.
His visit to the rebel-held capital came, as the cease-fire in Hodeidah was largely holding, despite intermittent skirmishes with both sides blaming each other.
Last week, representatives of the government and its foe Houthi rebel group, established joint cease-fire observation posts and deployed liaison officers along the Hodeidah city front-lines.
Abhijit Guha, head of the UN cease-fire monitoring mission in Hodeidah, observed this process on the ground over the past week.
The process came, in accordance with UN-sponsored cease-fire agreement reached in Stockholm in Dec, 2018.
Iran-allied Houthi rebels control much of Hodeidah, while the Saudi-backed government troops have advanced to the southeastern districts.
The 2018 Stockholm Agreement was seen as the first phase towards achieving a comprehensive political solution, to end Yemen's civil war.
