The US House of Representatives has overwhelmingly approved a resolution to end Washington's support for the Saudi war in Yemen.
The vote would not be enough, however, to overcome Trump's promised veto of the war powers resolution. The Senate is also expected to vote on the resolution within 30 days. The Trump administration stopped refuelling Saudi coalition planes last fall, but intelligence sharing and other logistical support have been ongoing. The administration missed a February 7 reporting deadline stemming from the Global Magnitsky Act, which gave President Trump 120 days to make a determination and state whether the US would sanction anyone deemed responsible for the murder. A parallel resolution was passed by the Senate late previous year in a 56-to-41 vote.
The bill is seen as a reaction to the ongoing relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia despite the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October. "The House is trying to assert dominance over the U.S. -Saudi relationship, and the war in Yemen is a low-hanging fruit to fuel that effort" he said.
