Saudi-led coalition must cease air strikes in Yemen: Sec. Pompeo
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday called for a cessation of hostilities in Yemen and said U.N.-led negotiations to end the civil war should begin next month.
In a statement, Pompeo said missile strikes by Iran-allied Houthi rebels against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates should stop, and the Saudi-led coalition must cease air strikes in all populated areas of Yemen.
