Washington: US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have called on all parties in the Yemen civil war to agree to a truce “in the next 30 days” amid criticism of Washington’s support for the Saudi-led coalition in the conflict. “Thirty days from now we want to see everybody around a peace table based on a ceasefire, based on a pullback from the border and then based on ceasing dropping of bombs that will permit the (UN) special envoy Martin Griffiths to get them together in Sweden and end this war,” Mattis said at an event at the US Institute of Peace here on Tuesday. A similar call was later made by Pompeo, who said: “The US calls on all parties to support Griffiths in finding a peaceful solution to the conflict in Yemen.” Mattis and Pompeo both insisted that the US-backed Saudi-led coalition and the Iranian-aligned Houthis stop their respective aerial and missile attacks, CNN reported.
