RT / The White House has called on ‘all sides’ to cease fighting in Yemen, but failed to address the US role in the ongoing devastation in the Middle East’s poorest nation. US military support has been crucial in the Saudi-led war on Yemen. “The United States is gravely concerned by the recent escalation in violence and continued dire humanitarian conditions in Yemen,” the White House said in a statement Friday. “We urge all parties to immediately cease hostilities, reenergize political talks, and end the suffering of the Yemeni people.”
Secretary Tillerson also spoke about #SaudiArabia and #Yemen : We have called for a complete end of the blockade in #Yemen and the opening of all ports. We are asking Saudi Arabia allow that access.
