Statement from Ambassador Matthew Tueller, US Ambassador to Yemen

The United States is very concerned about the reports of fighting in Sanaa and the potential this has for civilian casualties and damage to the capital city.  We urge calm and welcome the statements from various parties about seeking a peaceful resolution.  The violence in Sanaa and the desperate humanitarian crisis underscore the need for an immediate cessation of hostilities and concessions on all sides to bring about an end to the war.
