effort in yemen here's how the secretary of state reacted to the move just poorly timed this is what the decision is all about on the floor of the united states senate passing a resolution this point it would encourage the who these were encouraged to reign in we will no longer be part of their destructive military adventurism and hopefully get a cease fire in yemen something that we have diplomatically been striving for for months and we think we're right on the cusp of that we were fuelling the bombers that the saudis sent in to yemen a vote comes amid the ongoing debate over the killing of jamal khashoggi the dissident journalist murdered last month inside the saudi continent in istanbul kind of open house more on washington's current divisions when the vote was sixty three to thirty seven with support on both sides of the aisle the resolution called for the united states to end any cooperation with the saudi led attack on yemen now

a it's been widely reported that the united states prevented a resolution in the united nations that would have condemned the saudi attacks on yemen the resolution had support from the united kingdom among others and essential he would have called on saudi arabia to cease its activities that harm civilians however the united states works behind the scenes to prevent it from becoming a resolution now there has been widespread opposition and condemnation to saudi arabia's activities in yemen we've heard statements from charities that have come forward humanitarian organizations and said that essentially saudi activities put fourteen million people at risk of malnutrition however the united states continues to align with saudi arabia now it's important to point out that this is not the first time there have been votes on capitol hill regarding this issue and back in march the u.s. senate was presented with the opportunity to vote on this resolution and failed to do so they did not pass this resolution however today as we have seen they did actually come forward and condemn saudi arabia's activities in yemen not much has
