Mattis, Pompeo call for ceasefire in Yemen

What they said:

Mattis, who spoke at the U.S. Institute of Peace, via CNN: “We’ve got to move towards a peace effort and we can’t say we’re going to do it some time in the future. We need to be doing this in the next 30 days, we’ve admired this problem for long enough down there.”

Pompeo issued a statement: “The time is now for the cessation of hostilities. … Substantive consultations under the UN Special Envoy must commence this November in a third country. … It is time to end this conflict, replace conflict with compromise, and allow the Yemeni people to heal through peace and reconstruction.
