United Nations Security Council has called on parties to the Yemeni conflict to negotiate a nationwide cease-fire and a political settlement.

In a statement, the members of the Security Council expressed concern about military developments elsewhere in Yemen and stressed the need for de-escalation by all parties. 

They condemned the ongoing escalation in Marib, which exacerbates Yemen's humanitarian crisis and  threatens efforts to secure a political settlement.
