The debate, which may take place next week, would centre on a measure to restrict U.S. support for the Saudi military campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen, where a humanitarian disaster is unfolding.

A previous round in Geneva collapsed in September when the Houthis failed to show up. "The long term solution for the Yemen is a political situation and we will be encouraging all parties actually to look for that and work for that".

The prime minister is set to hold a trilateral meeting with United States President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

On Wednesday, senators expressed frustration at how the USA has responded to the murder of Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate in Turkey last month.

The Republican-led Senate voted 63 to 37 on Wednesday to advance legislation which would end the USA military's support of the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia was the second-largest purchaser of French arms between 2008 and 2017, with deals totalling more than $12.5bn.

Pompeo and Mattis both came to Capitol Hill to urgently lobby against the Yemen resolution, which would call for an end to U.S. military assistance for the conflict that human rights advocates say is wreaking havoc on Yemen and subjecting civilians to indiscriminate bombing.

The CIA concluded last week that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered Khashoggi's death, according to The Washington Post.

Argentine legal authorities took initial action Wednesday to consider a request from Human Rights Watch to prosecute Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for alleged crimes against humanity.

Yemen has been wracked by conflict since 2014, when the Shiite Houthi rebels overran much of the country.

One Republican emerged from the briefing calling for new sanctions on Saudi Arabia over Mr Khashoggi's murder. Riyadh has accused the Houthi rebel group of serving as a proxy force for Iran, Saudi Arabia's arch foe in the region.

The three-year war has caused a massive humanitarian crisis.

Turkey has called for the extradition of the killers for trial in Turkey where the crime took place.

"Prince Salman was mindful of the contributions that Indians have made in the building of Saudi Arabia over the years and he specifically expressed appreciation for this", Gokhale said.
