Wanted: Patient Diplomacy in Yemen

Authors Gordon Gray and Brian Katulis discuss the need for robust U.S. diplomacy efforts to help resolve the humanitarian crisis and conflict in Yemen.

Recent Congressional debates about the Yemen war  have put a high priority on imposing costs on the Saudi-led military coalition by restricting arms sales and military cooperation. Moreover, this past week’s vote in the U.S. Senate is just the latest in a series of Congressional actions sending a message of disapproval about the Trump administration’s military policy in Yemen. But that’s only one aspect of a deeper policy discussion that needs to emphasize diplomacy.

To get serious about peace in Yemen, we need to examine all of the measures needed to help Yemenis achieve lasting stability.
