Talks between Yemen's warring parties next month will focus on a transitional governance deal and disarmament, the U.N. special envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths said in remarks published Saturday.The last round of talks in 2016 ended with Hadi's government walking out after the Houthis rejected a U.N. proposal calling on the group to quit three main cities, including Sanaa, ahead of talks to form a government.Griffiths said discussions on a new government should also include representatives from the General People's Congress, once headed by slain former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the southern separatist movement, a powerful force that has provided many of the coalition-backed fighters against the Houthis.
