Alsahwa Net- Chief of the US Central Command, Gen. McKenzie said on Friday that Saudi Arabia seeks honestly for a resolution to the conflict in Yemen.
McKenzie’s statement was part of a lengthy press interview, the US Central Command published on its Twitter account.
On the other hand, Iran has no desire towards ending the war in Yemen, McKenzie said.
He added that Saudi Arabia seeks a negotiated resolution to the conflict in Yemen.
The five-year long fighting intensified in Yemen following a coup by the Iran-backed Houthis rebels who took control of Sana’a in late 2014.
Saudi Arabia intervened in March 2015 in an attempt to end the rebellion and to restore the legitimate government.
