A proposed U.N. resolution circulated Monday urges Yemen's warring parties to relaunch negotiations to end the three-year conflict and take urgent steps to tackle the world's worst humanitarian crisis, which has pushed the country to the brink of famine.The Security Council resolution, obtained by The Associated Press, also calls on Yemen's internationally recognized government and Houthi rebels to agree to a cease-fire around the key port of Hodeida.Yemenis are completely reliant on commercial and humanitarian supplies of food, water, fuel, medicine and other essential supplies, and over 70 percent of those are shipped through rebel-held Hodeida. Lowcock said the Security Council should urge the parties to negotiate an end to the conflict and the international community to boost aid.
