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.

During his visit in Oman, Kerry will be discussing the possibility of restarting peace talks which have stalled between the Houthi militias and the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The war in Yemen, which has claimed more than 10,000 lives according to the UN, has caused a serious humanitarian crisis in this country.
