The warring sides in the Yemeni conflict are close to reaching a major deal in Kuwait, where they have been negotiating for more than a month, a report says.

High-ranking diplomats attending the talks in Kuwait City said Tuesday that the two sides had agreed on ceasing the hostilities on the ground and setting up a transitional government in Yemen, the Lebanese al-Mayadin TV reported.

The sources said the new government would have resigned President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi at its head for a maximum of 45 days, after which he would give up his authorities to a deputy picked with mutual consensus.

Who that deputy will be is, according to the report, still an issue of disagreement.

According to the report, Yemen’s former vice president, Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, will have no role in the transitional government.

A committee comprising senior political and military figures will also be established to supervise the implementation of the agreement during the transitional period.

If officially declared, the agreement will be the first major achievement of the peace talks on Yemen, which have been going on in Kuwait since April 21. The talks, mediated by the United Nations (UN), drew together the representatives of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and those of Hadi’s former regime.

Hadi resigned from the presidency and escaped the capital, Sana’a, to southern Yemen in late 2014 and later to Saudi Arabia. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia launched a war on Yemen in an attempt to have Hadi reinstated. Around 10,000 people have been killed and at least 16,000 others injured in the Saudi war.

UN envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said last Thursday that there was hope the talks would progress as the warring parties had started discussing the details of a comprehensive agreement.
