US President Donald Trump has vetoed a congressional resolution that could have lead to end US involvement and equipping the Saudi-led war in Yemen, the White House said yesterday.

“This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future” – Trump said in his veto message.

Anwar Gargash, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, called the move a sign and an example of US’s support towards its allies.

”President Trump’s assertion of support to the Arab Coalition in Yemen is a positive signal of US resolve towards America’s allies. Common strategic interests are best served with this clear commitment.” – he wrote in his tweets. 

”Coalition continues to work without interruption to support peace through UN-led Stockholm Agreement & its commitment to the humanitarian & political dimensions of the Yemen crisis unshakable. President Trump’s important decision is both timely & strategic.” – he added.
