Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi approved a three-day truce Monday, the country’s foreign minister said.
Al-Hadi’s approval came in response to an appeal launched by the U.S. and the United Kingdom on Sunday for an immediate and unconditional cease-fire.
Yemeni Foreign Minister Abdel-Malek al-Mekhlafi, in a statement posted on his Twitter account wrote that "President Hadi approved a cease-fire 72 hours which can be extended" without stating its entry date in force.
Mekhlafi also asked to reactivate the role of the cease-fire committee and ease the siege on the city of Taiz in the southwest of the country.
Houthis rebels have not commented on the developments.
