Introduced in Senate (12/13/2018)

This joint resolution expresses the Senate's belief that Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. It criticizes Saudi Arabia's cooperation with, and military equipment purchases from, Russia and China as challenges to the country's long-term relationship with the United States.

The joint resolution calls for an immediate cease-fire in the civil war in Yemen and for the two sides to negotiate a peace agreement. It declares that there is no statutory authority for U.S. involvement in the conflict, including for providing in-air refueling to Saudi aircraft flying missions against the Houthi rebels.

The resolution also condemns the Houthi rebels for human rights violations and the government of Iran for supplying them with weapons.
