December 09, 2018

United States vows to continue support to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen’s war. U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Arabian Gulf Affairs, Timothy Lenderking told a security forum in United Arab Emirates that Washington will remain engaged in efforts to combat militancy in the Arab state.

Lenderking said U.S. believe that support for coalition is necessary and we seek a stable and unified Yemen that fosters rather than drains regional and global stability.

The U.S. official’s reassurances of continued support comes as Sweden hosts the first U.N.-led peace talks in two years between the warring parties and as Gulf Arab leaders hold an annual summit in Riyadh today.
