GENEVA- The foreign minister of the Yemeni government in exile said on Friday that UN-sponsored peace talks with Houthi fighters in Geneva had not reached agreement on a ceasefire to end nearly three months of fighting.

"We really came here with a big hope and still we are optimistic that we will go into a peaceful solution for Yemen under the umbrella of the United Nations. But unfortunately the Houthi delegation did not allow us to really reach all progress as we expected. This is not getting as much succces as we hoped but it doesn't mean that we have failed," Reyad Yassin Abdulla told reporters.

He later told Reuters "there is no date" for a second round of peace talks after some five days of shuttle diplomacy between the delegations by UN special envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
