Yemen's peace talks concluded in Switzerland on Sunday without reaching a deal to end the nine-months conflict.
At a press conference after the talks, UN envoy to Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh said the Yemeni factions agreed to a framework for a new round of talks on January 15.
The place where the talks will be held will be determined later.
The talks will continue in accordance with the UN resolution 2216, the Gulf Initiative and the outcomes of the national dialog conference, he elaborated.
"Bringing the Yemeni factions to face-to-face talks during which they exchanged views was a breakthrough, a step in the right direction," he told reporters.
The talks produced key outcomes including the formation of a military liaison committee tasked with observing and maintains the ceasefire, he said. "This committee comprised military advisers from both sides and will work under UN supervision," he said.
Moreover, the Yemeni factions have agreed measures to build mutual trust including the release all prisoners held in connection with the crisis without exceptions.
There was also an agreement to allow humanitarian aid to reach all war-affected provinces especially Taiz which has been besieged for several months.
Among his remarks, Cheikh affirmed that the UN is committed to lift the blockade on Yemen and that he will do his best to ensure implantation of what has been agreed to by Yemenis.
The blockade was imposed by the Saudi-led coalition part of the military operation launched against Yemen in late March.
