Letter from Democratic senators, led By Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) calling on President Joe Biden to take “immediate and decisive action” to end Saudi Arabia’s air and naval blockade on Yemen.
A group of Democratic senators, led by Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), are calling on President Joe Biden to take “immediate and decisive action” to end Saudi Arabia’s air and naval blockade on Yemen that it has applied sporadically since 2015. Warren writes in her letter to President Biden that Saudi’s blockade has assisted to the widespread famine in Yemen by halting food production and transportation. Medicine and critical supplies have also been cut off from being reached to Yemenis in necessary need. Warren and her senatorial cosigners ask President biden to further dwindle relations with Saudi Arabia through weapon sales and military cooperation in effort to curb saudi blockade.
