Saudis, Stalemate, and the Special Envoy: Moves Toward Peace in Yemen

After several years of bloody stalemate, Saudi Arabia announced this week it is seeking political settlement in Yemen. This move comes just a few weeks after an agreement between the Yemeni government and Houthi rebels. Barbara A. Leaf, who was U.S. ambassador to the United Arab Emirates from 2014-2018, and is now the Ruth and Sid Lapidus Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy joins us to discuss prospects for peace in Yemen, the role of a Saudi-Houthi backchannel, and the wider implications of these recent developments.
