The US embassy in Saudi Arabia tweeted that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have agreed on the importance of de-escalation in Yemen. The embassy also stated that they have agreed for the need for continued adherence to Sweden agreements, especially cease-fire and redeployment in Hudaydah. Earlier in December, Iranian-allied Houthi rebels and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government had agreed on a ceasefire in Hodeidah and to withdraw troops from the strategic Red Sea port city in the Sweden peace talks. Pompeo is on a regional tour and journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the blockade of neighbouring Qatar is expected to be high on the agenda.
