U.S. Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking is traveling to the Gulf this week to meet with partners in the region to discuss the urgent need to reduce regional tensions, including cessation of Houthi attacks, which are undermining both freedom of navigation in the Red Sea and progress on the Yemen peace process.

The United States is working closely with our partners to support peace efforts under UN auspices and alleviate the complex humanitarian and economic crises harming the Yemeni people.

Special Envoy Lenderking will meet with regional counterparts to discuss the necessary steps to de-escalate the current situation, stop the ongoing Houthi attacks in the Red Sea, and renew focus on securing a durable peace for the people of Yemen.
