US Yemen envoy to visit Gulf this week
Trip is part of American efforts to bring end to conflict in Yemen
The US special envoy for Yemen, Tim Lenderking, will travel on Monday to the Gulf region, the State Department said.
Mr Lenderking will hold high-level meetings with senior officials in several Gulf countries to support American efforts to bring an end to the conflict in Yemen.
He will also meet the UN special envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, the department said.
Mr Lenderking will "focus on the United States’ dual-track approach to end the conflict in Yemen: a lasting political solution and humanitarian relief for the Yemeni people".
Mr Lenderking visited Riyadh this month.
Last week, the US urged Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels to stop their offensive on the government-held city of Marib and take part in international efforts to find a political solution.
