Yemen's dominant Houthi-led governing body, Tuesday, welcomed U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry's, new peace call, aimed to achieve a lasting cessation to 22-month civil war in Yemen.

The Houthi-led newly formed body, called "the National Salvation Government" also urged immediate lifting to all-out blockade, imposed by Saudi-led military coalition that backed Houthis' foe of the internationally-recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

"The National Salvation Government welcome the new peace call, including the road-map proposed by UN envoy, Ould Cheikh Ahmed, as a basis for positive final negotiations to end the war, blockade and reach an honourable comprehensive political compromise," read a statement, carried by Houthi-controlled Saba.

On Sunday, Kerry, on this last visit to the Saudi Kingdom, expressed the home that a new ceasefire in the Yemen conflict could be agreed within two weeks.

Kerry said, in a joint news conference with his Saudi counterpart, Adel Al-Jubeir, that "the U.S. will work with Britain, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, to achieve a new pause in the fighting."

The would-be pause would be the eighth ceasefire attempt, since the war erupted early last year.
