There is an urgent need to find a political solution to Yemen's war, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Thursday, as he voiced hope for a U.N. special envoy's peace efforts and firmly backed Riyadh.Mattis said he believes Saudi Arabia is "part of the solution".The war in Yemen has displaced more than 2 million people and driven the country – already the poorest on the Arabian Peninsula – to the verge of widespread famine.The Pentagon said Mattis and the crown prince also discussed Afghanistan and that Riyadh was willing to help members of the Taliban and their families who were interested in reconciliation efforts.
