Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman affirmed Saudi Arabia’s initiative to end the Yemeni crisis and start consultations between the Yemeni parties to reach a political solution to the Yemeni crisis based on the three references under the auspices of the United Nations.
The Saudi initiative includes a comprehensive ceasefire under the supervision of the United Nations, support for the United Nations proposal to allow the entry of oil derivatives ships to the port of Hodeidah, and the opening of Sana’a International Airport for flights to and from selected stations, in addition to the current relief flights.
This came during his meeting with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, according to the Saudi Press Agency, SPA.
For his part, Sullivan affirmed the strategic partnership between the two countries and the United States’ full commitment to supporting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s defense of its territory against all threats, including Iranian-backed missile and drone attacks.
He also affirmed the president’s support for the Kingdom’s goal of pushing for a lasting political solution and ending the Yemeni conflict, and affirmed the United States’ full support for these proposals and the efforts of the United Nations to reach a political solution to the crisis.
Saudi Arabia and the United States of America called for intensifying diplomatic efforts to reach that goal, and stressed the importance of the Houthis’ participation in good faith in political negotiations with the legitimate government under the supervision of the United Nations.
