In this context, the US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking has been maintaining his contacts in the Gulf region since the last week, searching for support to end the war in the country.

Debriefing by Lenderking, Blinken spoke to the conference that Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Yemen government are determined to find a solution to the conflict, and the same is expected from the Houthi group.
