US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived on Monday in Muscat to try to revive efforts to end the 19-month long war in Yemen.
According to Oman’s offical news agency ONA, Kerry is scheduled to meet with Omani Foreign Minister Youssef Ben Alaoui after being received by Sultan Qaboos.
This is one of his last journeys as head of the state department before the end of the Obama administration on January 20.
