Yemen have been destroyed by a four-year conflict

Saudi Arabia has condemned US Senate resolutions to end US military aid for a Riyadh-led war in Yemen and to blame the country’s crown prince for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs described the move as “interference” based on “unlikely charges”.

Thursday’s American resolutions are largely symbolic and unlikely to be a team.

But they sent a warning to President Donald Trump about the American legislature’s anger against Saudi politics.

President Trump has consistently defended US business and military ties with Saudi Arabia

The non-binding resolution urged Trump to remove all US forces engaged in hostilities in Yemen, except those who fight Islamist extremists.

The Senate then unanimously adopted a resolution which blames Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the murder of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi in October, insisting that the Kingdom bears responsibility.

The United States chose to quit Saudi warfare month and Thursday’s resolution – if it finally went to law – would forbid the exercise to resume.

Can this legislation be lawful?

President Trump has promised to veto the measures and it is unlikely that they are currently passing the House of Representatives, which on Wednesday blocked a vote on the matter.

But independent senator Bernie Sanders, who coordinated the measures, said he expected the resolutions to succeed when democracies formally took control of the Chamber in January after their medium-term election victory.

The Trump administration claimed that the bill on Yemen would undermine US support to the Saudi-Arab coalition against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

White House officials have emphasized US economic ties with the empire. Mr Trumps adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have continued to grow ties with the prince, according to the American media.
