U.S., UK, Germany and France discuss peace initiatives for Yemen

(Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and foreign ministers of Britain, Germany and France met on Tuesday to discuss peace initiatives for Yemen, British foreign minister Dominic Raab said.

“From pushing for peace in Yemen to preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power, Britain, U.S., France, Germany stand together as force for good,” Raab said in a tweet, using images of the flags of the four countries instead of naming them in words in his message. “Today @ABlinken @HeikoMaas @JY_LeDrian & I met in-person for the first time to discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
