star this property answer text <p>We take reports of alleged violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) by actors in the conflict very seriously. We regularly raise the importance of compliance with IHL with the Saudi Arabian Government and other members of the Coalition. The Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT) is the Coalition mechanism for investigating allegations of IHL violations. On Monday 12 November, the Foreign Secretary held constructive talks with the senior leadership of Saudi Arabia addressing the importance of respect for IHL, and the need for an urgent end to the conflict in Yemen, and a swift improvement in the dire humanitarian situation. We have circulated a draft resolution to the UN Security Council, however as is standard practice, a copy of the draft will not be placed in the Library.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​An inclusive political settlement is the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen and address the humanitarian crisis. It is for the UN Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, to determine the best route to such an inclusive political settlement, including whether, when and how to involve representatives of the South, political parties, tribes, women, youth and civil society. We fully support the efforts of the Special Envoy in this regard. We urge all Yemeni groups to pursue political aspirations through peaceful dialogue and to refrain from violence and inciting violence.</p> more like this
