United States Secretary of State John Kerry, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson alongside UN Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed called for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire in Yemen to end violence between the Saudi-led coalition and Houthi rebels, speaking after their meeting in London, on Sunday.

"One of things we think is absolutely vital is that there should be a ceasefire and the UN should lead the way in calling for that ceasefire," Johnson stated.

Kerry continued by calling for an implementation of the ceasefire "as rapidly as possible, meaning Monday, Tuesday". "We are not calling for this in a vacuum. There have been communications to both the Houthi through various intermediaries, as well as to President Hadi respectful of his position. But this is the time to implement a ceasefire unconditionally and to move to the negotiating table," he added.

Between 9,000 and 12,000 people have been killed since the Saudi-led campaign against Houthi forces started in 2015, according to UN estimates.
