Pompeo called on Saudi Arabia to stop the bombing of Yemen

20
The Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia should cease airstrikes on Yemen, reports RIA News Statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.




In addition, according to Pompeo, it is necessary to conduct negotiations on the situation in Yemen in a “third” country in order to stop the armed conflict and create a demilitarized zone there. He proposed to hold such negotiations in November of this year.

On the eve of the representative of the coalition Turki al-Maliki reported on the next Allied air attack on objects of the Housits ​​in the Yemeni province of Hodeidah, as a result of which 150 militants were destroyed.

He clarified that the missile-bombing strike was inflicted on the rebel training camp.

For several months, the Arab coalition has been trying to discourage the Huseites from Hodeidah, where a strategically important seaport is located, through which, according to the Saudis, Iran delivers ballistic missiles and other weapons to the militants.

Recall that the armed conflict between the government of President Abd Rabbu Mansur Hadi and Shiite Hussite rebels has continued in Yemen since 2014. On the side of the government, a coalition created by Saudi Arabia intervened in the conflict. The war led to the sharpest crisis in the country. According to the UN, two thirds of the population (about 18 million) of Yemen is on the verge of starvation.

Currently, fierce battles are taking place near the city of Hodeidah. Numerous attempts to recapture the port from the Hussites proved unsuccessful. The Allies sought help from the United States, but were refused.

      Pompeo was offended! Bombing other countries is the exclusive prerogative of the United States ... laughing

          Pompeo decided to coagulate Syrian reconciliation among the GDP. Let him come to Moscow - Lavrov will teach him for $ 50 billion. Money for missiles will not hurt us.

            Something he "remembered" for 3,5 years that the Saudis are bombing someone without US participation.
            It seems that his ancestors were from Italy, and not from the Baltic states.

      They have such fun. But here, most likely, the point is different. Recently, the Houthis turned to Russia with a proposal to intervene in the Yemeni conflict and act as a mediator in the negotiations on a ceasefire, given that the Russian Federation has good negotiating positions with both S. Arabia and Iran. Libya also applied to Russia for the same participation. Considering that Russia also played a major role in the pacification of Syria, the United States understands that its authority as “world leaders” in the B. East tends to zero and they can finally lose it, relying solely on weapons. They could not achieve a quick "development" of Yemen by the Saudis and after observing for several years that the half-toed Houthis quite successfully confront the technologically savvy Saudi army for themselves, they understand that this conflict can last indefinitely, and they need control over the neck of the Red Sea already now, and therefore the presence of Russia in this region, at least as an intermediary, at least as a participant, is like a bone in their throat, and hence these movements to change the helmet to the cap of the peacemaker.

      Everything is simpler - if you cannot (you yourself or those who are fighting by your "proxy" - like the "Arab coalition" in Yemen) win the war - you must try to make peace and "win the peace."

        YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE, but it’s even simpler - you don’t need peace, you need muddy water and prerequisites for seeking benefits .. And for this, the existing war is ideal, and the kindled one is potential ...

          The war in Yemen may well end. Losing the "coalition", moreover. And this for the States will be absolutely - not "comme il faut" at all.

            Do you remember the times when everything ended in Yemen? In my opinion, they themselves do not really remember what you are doing about ... They fought even during the USSR control over this region ...

    Yemen's problem has no military solution. The intervention of the Saudis only exacerbated the intricate dialogue between men. The cessation of hostilities of the anti-Husit coalition and the Hussites is a normal way to resolve the problem. At the same time, it is worth bearing in mind such a decision as the formation of two Yemeni states, as it was already before. hi

    Iran delivers BR through Hodeidah, this is what they rub in, but they have the entire southern coast of Yemen at their disposal, well, almost everything. Here it has already been said above (about amers), as it is necessary to show your foul "peacekeeping". This is not washed off, and they are used to creating without washing. Although they just don't do anything.

    It is too naive to think that the Houthis will sit down at the negotiating table with American mediation. Though they run "barefoot", they have eyes and brains, and I think they understand themselves.

    And in my opinion, Bessmertniy's colleague is absolutely right in this matter. Only here it’s hardly worth getting into this snake-hole and our country. There, after all, their internal problems are higher than the roof, in addition to the ongoing war. hi
