Al-Houthi wrote on Twitter on Monday morning: “We are waiting for action: withdrawing US forces and experts from the battle and neutralize their weapons, as well as withdrawing it from the current confrontation alongside the countries of Saudi coalition against Yemen. Aside from this [we expect the US] to inform the US Navy to lift the blockade. This what would be consistent with the statement now.”
The United States plans to reinvigorate diplomatic efforts, alongside the United Nations and others, to end the war in Yemen, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths, a State Department spokesperson said on Sunday, according to Reuters.
“He highlighted that the United States supports a unified, stable Yemen free from foreign influence, and believes that there is no military solution to the conflict,” State Department Spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.
