Onlast Thursday, US President Joe Biden called for an end to the war in Yemen, announcing an end to US “support” and “arms sales” to the Saudi-led military coalition in this country.

For their part, the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen expressed, on Friday, their doubts about the foreign policy declared by President Joe Biden to press for peace and an end to the Saudi war in Yemen.
The Houthis believed that “real peace” and stopping missile attacks on Saudi Arabia “will not be before stopping the aggression and lifting the blockade, and Yemen’s missiles to defend Yemen and stop it by stopping the aggression and the siege completely,” according to the tweet of the group’s spokesman, Muhammad Abdul Salam, on Twitter.
On the other hand, the US Senate announced its refusal to stop US support for Saudi Arabia, and the House voted against a draft resolution to stop US support for the Saudi military campaign in Yemen.
This coincided with a meeting at the White House of US President Donald Trump with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who started a three-week visit to the United States.
The senators rejected the draft resolution by 55 votes against it to 44 votes with it, and the drafters of the bill for the first time tried to use a clause in the War Powers Act of 1973 authorizing any member of the Senate to put forward a bill on withdrawing American forces from any conflict that did not get Congressional authorization to participate in it.
Some attribute the American decision to the fact that the purpose of the decision is to send multiple messages to the regional actors in the Yemeni war, on top of which is Iran, stating the need to stop the war, saying the war must be stopped.
