Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said on Wednesday that the Arab Coalition was and continues to remain committed to a political solution in Yemen, despite the pro-Iranian militias’ procrastination.

The Saudi Prince said in a tweet that the Coalition supporting the legitimate government in Yemen has “succeeded in accomplishing many goals of the military operation and always asserted the need to force the Houthi delegation to come to the negotiating table and implement international resolutions, especially UN Security Council Resolution 2216.”
