Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is visiting the United States this week from March 19 to 22. On Tuesday, he is expected to meet with U.S. President Trump at the White House. Raed Jarrar, advocacy director of Middle East North Africa at Amnesty International USA, issued this statement:
“The Saudi-led coalition has repeatedly committed horrific violations in Yemen, some amounting to war crimes, devastating the lives of thousands of people. If the U.S. government doesn’t stop supplying arms to this coalition, it risks complicity in the deaths of countless more people.
“President Trump must hold Saudi Arabia’s government accountable for its serious violations of international law and immediately end the sale of arms to the Saudi-led coalition.”
