Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi on Monday discussed the situation in Yemen at a meeting held in Mecca.

The meeting came after the Saudi-led coalition intervened in Aden on Sunday in support of the Yemeni government after UAE-backed southern separatists effectively took over the port city.The UAE, Saudi Arabia's main military ally on the ground for most of the war, has drawn down forces since June.

The Saudi Arabian and UAE rulers meeting comes as an apparent effort to stop further damage to their alliance that would boost their common enemy, the Houthis, and their regional rival Shi'ite Muslim Iran.
