Mattis and Pompeo urge swift ceasefire

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have both called for a swift ceasefire in Yemen. Mattis said the US wanted to see all sides around the negotiating table and an end to air strikes within 30 days. In a separate statement, Pompeo said UN-led negotiations to help end the civil war should resume next month. Yemen faces a growing humanitarian disaster as the four-year-old conflict drags on. US President Donald Trump’s administration is under growing pressure over its support for the Saudi-led coalition that backs the Yemeni government against Houthi rebels.
