Yemen foreign minister says 'very possible' ground forces will be needed
Arab ground forces may be needed in the next phase of a Saudi-led operation against Iranian-allied Houthi fighters in Yemen, Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyadh Yaseen said on Saturday, Reuters reported.
Asked at an Arab League summit in Egypt whether ground troops would be required, he told reporters: "This is possible. Very possible."
Yaseen also said Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi would stay in an Arab capital until conditions in Yemen allowed him to return there.
