Bahrain Mirror: Yemeni Foreign Minister Abdel-Malek al-Mekhlafi said that his country has no knowledge of the deal announced by US Secretary of State John Kerry, announcing a Yemen ceasefire and formation of a new government.

Kerry announced an initial deal between Yemen's Houthi group and the Saudi-led coalition fighting it had agreed to a ceasefire in Yemen from Thursday (November 17, 2016), with an agreement to work towards the establishing a new national unity government by the end of this year.

"The government was not aware of, nor is it interested in what Secretary Kerry announced, which represents a desire to scuttle peace efforts by trying to reach an agreement with the Houthis apart from the government," Mekhlafi wrote on his official Twitter page.

"We should be a part of any deal, and not only be informed of it," al-Mekhlafi went on to say, according to al-Arabiya Channel twitter account.
