Defense Secretary James Mattis calls for a ceasefire between the warring factions in Yemen by the end of November. "Thirty days from now we want to see everybody around a peace table based on a ceasefire, based on a pullback from the border and then based on ceasing dropping of bombs that will permit the special envoy, Martin Griffiths...to get them together in Sweden and end this war," Mattis says at an event at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C. His comments echo a similar statement made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the conflict. "We've got to move toward a peace effort here, and you can't say we're going to do it sometime in the future. We need to be doing this in the next 30 days. We've admired this problem for long enough down there," Secretary Mattis says. close
