Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has said his country supports a political solution to end the war in Yemen.

The king made the remarks delivered on Monday in his annual policy speech to the kingdom’s most senior officials, military officers, clerics and princes.

He said Saudi Arabia supports a political solution in line with a UN resolution that calls on Yemen’s rebel Houthis to withdraw from all major cities which the Shiite rebels have seized during the three-year war.
