yemen world news

(Worthy News) - Secretary of State Jim Mattis has called for a 30-day cease-fire in Yemen's civil war and the start of peace talks, within a month's time.

The Pentagon chief's remarks signal a clear desire by the United States to bring and end to the fighting that's plagued Yemen for the last few years.

"Thirty days from now we want to see everybody around a peace table based on a cease-fire, based on a pullback from the border and then based on ceasing dropping of bombs that will permit the [United Nations] special envoy, Martin Griffiths to get them together in Sweden and end this war," Mattis said in a speech Tuesday at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington.
