The United States condemns yesterday's suicide bombing, claimed by Daesh in Yemen, that left more than 50 people dead and scores more injured, State Department spokesman, John Kirby, said.
"We express our condolences to all of those affected, to the families of the victims, and everyone else affected," he said, during a briefing.
The attack underscores the urgency of a full and comprehensive settlement, that will shrink the political and security vacuum, that has been created by the civil war in Yemen, Kirby said.
"In the absence of a political solution, we remain concerned, the Daesh and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, will continue to take advantage of the instability, and innocent people will, regrettably, continue to suffer," he added.
Last week, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, laid out a path for a full and comprehensive settlement in Yemen, Kirby said, "And we urge parties to seize this opportunity, to work constructively with the UN special envoy, as he begins his consultations.
