US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday that there is a “new plan” aimed at ending conflict in Yemen which will see participation of the Iran-backed Houthi militia group in a unity government.
Kerry arrived in Jeddah from Nigeria for discussions with Saudi leaders and other Gulf Arab states and will also update them on US meetings with Russia addressing military cooperation in Syria, a senior US official said ahead of the talks.
The talks come as Syrian rebels backed by Turkish special forces, tanks and warplanes entered one of ISIS’s last strongholds on the Turkish-Syrian border, in Turkey’s first major US-backed incursion into its southern neighbor. In Saudi Arabia, talks with the deputy crown prince, which began late and lasted three hours, ended at 12:59 a.m. local time, US officials said.
