Security Ties With Saudi Arabia 'No Blank Cheque': US After Yemen Strikes

Washington: The US today said its security cooperation with Saudi Arabia is not a "blank cheque" as the Obama Administration strongly condemned its key ally's air strikes on a funeral in Yemen which killed over 140 people. "US security cooperation with Saudi Arabia is not a blank cheque," said Ned Price, Spokesman of the National Security Council, the White House.
