star this property answer text <p>A political settlement remains the only means for bringing long-term stability to Yemen – there is no military solution to the conflict. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. In March this year, the UK proposed and coordinated a UN Security Council Presidential Statement (PRST) which was agreed on 15 March 2018. This PRST builds upon the previous one agreed on 15 June 2017, also sponsored and coordinated by the UK, it expresses deep concern about the humanitarian situation in Yemen, welcomes the appointment of the new UN Special Envoy for Yemen, and calls for the parties to agree steps towards a ceasefire. We will continue to work with our Yemeni, regional and international partners to ensure that words are converted into action. The UK fully supports – including through financial assistance – the work of the UN Special Envoy to facilitate progress towards peace talks. We convene the &quot;Quad&quot; format of British, American, Saudi and Emirati Foreign Ministers to discuss what practical steps can be taken to move the political process forward.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government keeps under consideration whether a new UN resolution would support progress towards a political settlement in Yemen. Given the lack of agreement between the parties to the conflict at present, we judge that the best opportunity for progress comes through the appointment of Martin Griffiths as the new UN Special Envoy for Yemen. We encourage the parties to return to negotiations without pre-conditions and participate constructively in the UN-led political process. We were encouraged by the Envoy's presentation to the UN Security Council on 17 April and will do all we can, including through action at the Security Council if required, to support his efforts to facilitate a political solution to the conflict in Yemen.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is playing a leading role in diplomatic efforts, including by bringing together key international actors, to find a peaceful solution. The Foreign Secretary most recently discussed the urgent need for a political solution with the Saudi Foreign Minister,the Deputy Emirati Foreign Minister, and the US Assistant Secretary of State on 26 April. The UK strongly supports, including through financial assistance, the work of Martin Griffiths as the UN Special Envoy for Yemen. We are using our role as penholder at the UN Security Council to focus international attention on the need for progress. We secured the agreement of a Presidential Statement on 15 March which called for an inclusive political solution, and for all parties to the conflict to abandon pre-conditions and engage in good faith with the UN-led process. The UK has committed £170 million towards the humanitarian crisis for 2018-19, making us the fourth largest donor to the UN appeal.</p> more like this

On 16 January, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to back the UK-led resolution which bolsters the UN Yemen peace process. It will establish a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire. The ceasefire is an important step towards peace but by no means guaranteed. It is therefore vital that all parties act in good faith and take urgent steps to implement these agreements.</p> more like this
