UNITED NATIONS (AP) A proposed U.N. resolution would establish a political mission in Yemen to oversee implementation of a cease-fire and the withdrawal of rival forces from the key port of Hodeida.

The British-drafted resolution, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, would approve Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' proposal for up to 75 U.N. monitors to be deployed for six months initially.

The draft resolution says the monitors would oversee the cease-fire in Hodeida and the surrounding area, demining operations at Hodeida and the smaller ports of Salif and Ras Issa, and the redeployment of forces. They would also work with Yemen's government and Houthi Shiite rebels to ensure that local forces provide security at the three ports.

Diplomats said the Security Council is expected to vote on the draft resolution next week.
