UAE and Saudi working to protect Yemen civilians: Pompeo

The United States Secretary of State has emphasised the efforts being undertaken by the UAE and Saudi Arabia to avoid harming civilians in Yemen.

Mike Pompeo certified to the US congress that the countries are carrying out demonstrable actions to reduce all risk to civilians and infrastructure during their military operations against the Iran-backed Houthi militia.

The UAE is part of the Saudi-led Arab coalition which is supporting Yemen's internationally-recognised legitimate government.
