Saudi Arabia and the United States have played down media reports that Washington had decided to limit Military support, including planned arms sales to the Kingdom, over its war in Yemen.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that Riyadh had not been officially informed of such decisions, which he described as contradicting the reality.
Visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry suggested the issue related more to a long procurement process than restrictions on military support.
Yemen’s 20-month-old war has killed more than 10,000 people and triggered humanitarian crises, including chronic food shortages, in the poorest country in the Arabian Peninsula.
Jubeir said he had spent time in the United States recently to try to get to know the policies and positions of the next administration.
