UK To Introduce U.N. Resolution To End Yemen War; Pompeo Says Iran Responsible For Famine

At the end of the same week that the Trump administration announced a 30-day deadline to reach a ceasefire in Yemen, it was revealed the United Kingdom is planning to introduce a United Nations Security Council resolution that seeks to end of the war.

According to a Friday ABC News report, citing diplomatic sources, the British could introduce the resolution as early as this coming week. ABC reports that "one source said it would call for a humanitarian ceasefire and the safe passage of food and other aid, for support for the cratering Yemeni economy, and on both sides to fully engage with the U.N. Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths."

Last week's ceasefire proposal by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been widely seen as the result of heightened media pressure and international outrage over the October 2nd killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi likely upon the direct orders of Saudi crown prince MbS.

But from the start it appeared a feeble attempt on the part of the U.S. to claim it's "on the side of peace" at a time that the U.N. has dubbed the situation in Yemen the world's "worst humanitarian crisis" — and at a time that Saudi war crimes in Yemen are increasingly being spotlighted.
