U.S. Ambassador to Yemen Matthew Tueller says he is "relatively optimistic" that a new power-sharing agreement can be reached between the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and the Houthi rebels who control the capital, Sana'a. VOA's Vincent Makori reports and Pentagon spokesperson Colonel Steve Warren comments on Yemen.
