RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said on Thursday that the kingdom supports U.N.-led peace efforts to end the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been battling Iran-aligned Houthi insurgents for more than three years.

“We support a peaceful solution in Yemen and we support the efforts of the U.N. special envoy to Yemen,” Adel al-Jubeir told reporters. “We are committed to delivering all the necessary humanitarian aid to our brothers in Yemen.”
