ABSTRACT

Political Transition in Yemen [April 25, 2022]   [open pdf - 897KB]

From the Document: "In April 2022, a truce went into effect between the Republic of Yemen Government (ROYG) and the 'Ansar Allah' movement (aka the Houthis), the first nationwide truce in six years. Yemen's president subsequently resigned, reportedly under pressure from Saudi Arabia, which leads a coalition backing the ROYG in its fight against the Iran-backed Houthi movement. Congress may review the status of the Yemen conflict during its consideration of the Biden Administration's request for $46 million in FY2023 foreign assistance funding for Yemen and through its oversight of the Administration's regional policies, including a potential nuclear agreement with Iran and defensive support to U.S. partners."
