WASHINGTON: Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman arrived at the Pentagon Thursday to meet Defence secretary James Mattis.
US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday thatb there was an urgent need to find a political solution to Yemen’s war, as he voiced hope for a UN special envoy’s peace efforts.
“We must also reinvigorate urgent efforts to seek a peaceful resolution to the civil war in Yemen and we support you in this regard,” Mattis said, offering his firm backing to Riyadh.
Asked by reporters at the start of his talks whether he would raise the issue of civilian casualties in Yemen, Mattis said: “We are going to end this war, that is the bottom line. And we are going to end it on positive terms for the people of Yemen but also security for the nations in the peninsula.”

    All countries in the world say the samething: Security of my. Ountty is First. Like Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia etc.

    If there is a threat from neighbor he ( President) has the right to enter the weak neighbor country to fight. I think he is a agressor.

    The reason of Turke to enter and combat PKK because PKK is terrorist
    The readon of Saudi to enter and combat Yemen becsuse Haiti ( Syiah) is terrorist
    The reason of Israel to enter and combat Gaza or Syria because they are terrorist.

    I do not agree such readon to kill innocent people.
    What do you think Rafiq?
