United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Saturday met with Saudi Arabia's Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman to discuss the latest developments in Yemen, with the two putting a focus on cities, such as Taiz, which are at the front lines of the conflict.

Blinken and the deputy minister underscored the need for United Nations-backed peace proposals, expressing support for the UN-negotiated truce in Yemen.

"They discussed with the Deputy Minister the enduring US commitment to strengthen Saudi Arabia's defenses, efforts to counter Iranian threats, and the importance of maintaining strong international support for Ukraine," the State Department said in a statement.
