LONDON: Saudi Arabia’s deputy defense minister received the UN and US special envoys to Yemen in Riyadh on Wednesday.

Prince Khalid bin Salman met Martin Griffiths and Timothy Lenderking and they discussed developments in the situation in Yemen, the Kingdom’s firm support for Yemenis and efforts made to reach a comprehensive political solution and achieve security and stability in Yemen, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Prince Khalid thanked the US and the international community for refusing to compromise the security of the Kingdom and standing against the hostile practices of the Iranian backed Houthi militia targeting cities and civilians and its continuing attacks on Marib governorate and other Yemeni governorates.

The meeting came after Saudi Arabia’s Abha Airport was attacked by explosive drones launched by the Houthis.
