Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in Argentina and discussed cooperation between the two countries in security, energy and investments, the Saudi Press Agency (SPS) said on Friday.
The Republican-majority chamber voted 63-37 to allow the measure, which invokes the War Powers Resolution, stopping all involvement of USA armed forces in the Yemen war, to proceed to the floor of the senate for a vote, expected next week.
The Yemen war has killed more than 15,000 people and created the world's most urgent humanitarian emergency.

The Crown Prince himself, known by his initials MBS, arrived in Buenos on Wednesday.
The Senate is advancing a bill to pull USA troops out of Yemen.
Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist working for The Washington Post, was killed shortly after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
While Mr Pompeo and Mr Mattis said there was no direct evidence connecting Prince Mohammed (MBS) to the murder, any downgrading of US-Saudi ties in response would hurt homeland security.
