Pentagon chief James Mattis held talks in the United Arab Emirates late Friday after warning last month that U.S. support for its military intervention in Yemen was not unconditional.Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Zayed tweeted that his talks with Mattis covered "the enhancing of defense and military ties" and "issues of mutual interest".
