Kerry says war in Yemen should end in way protecting Saudi security

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday stressed that the war in Yemen should end in a way that protects the security of Saudi Arabia, Al Arabiya News reported.


Speaking at a press conference with his Saudi counterpart Adel Al-Jubeir, the visiting U.S. secretary of state urged all political parties to go back to the negotiating table to reach an agreement.

A UN plan on Yemen is not final and is negotiable, Kerry said, noting that the main goal of ending the war in Yemen is to reach a political settlement to deal with the humanitarian crisis there.

The top U.S. diplomat added that the U.S., like Saudi Arabia, objects the Iranian interference in Yemen.

Meanwhile, Al-Jubeir said that any agreement in Yemen should focus on the Gulf initiative and the UN resolution, urging the world for firm steps to stop the Iranian interference in regional issues.

Kerry's remarks highlighted the U.S. stance to end a Saudi-led coalition's war in Yemen, which will enter its third year in March, causing a devastating crisis among civilians in the conflict-hit areas.
