WASHINGTON (AP) - Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran says he will support speeding up a vote on ending U.S. military involvement in a war led by Saudi Arabia in Yemen.

The Kansas City Star reports the Kansas Republican said Tuesday that he supports a procedural step to move a resolution ending U.S. involvement toward final passage. The procedural vote is Wednesday.

The resolution is rebuke to Saudi Arabia over its role in journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder. It’s also a rebuke to President Donald Trump’s administration, which has made it clear that it does not want to torpedo the long-standing U.S.-Saudi relationship over the killing.

Moran said in a statement that passing the resolution should help force a diplomatic resolution to the war after nearly four years and ease the resulting humanitarian crisis.
