Riyadh: Yemen`s government in exile said it would not attend planned UN-brokered peace talks unless Shiite rebels first accept a UN resolution demanding their withdrawal from territory they have captured.

A short statement published by the exiled president`s office overnight said the government had decided "not to take part in any meeting until the militia recognises Resolution 2216 and agrees to implement it without conditions".
