star this property answer text <p>​The UK's view remains that there can be no military solution to the conflict and we fully support the UN Special Envoy for Yemen in facilitating a credible peace process. On 15 March, the UK proposed and coordinated a UN Security Council Presidential Statement which reiterated the Council's call on the parties to agree on the modalities for a durable cessation of hostilities.</p><p>We are extremely concerned at recent reports of the growing risk of famine to millions of Yemenis. The UK plays a leading role in combatting hunger in Yemen and on World Food Day (16 October) we announced a package of £96.5 million which will help UNICEF tackle malnutrition in Yemen over the coming three years.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The Government keeps under consideration whether a new UN resolution would support progress towards a polictical settlement in Yemen. Any new UN Security Council resolution requires consensus amongst the international community and the cooperation of regional parties to have an effect on the ground. Passing a resolution without clear progress on the political track risks undermining the authority of the Council. 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 and participate constructively in the UN-led political process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We sponsored a UN Security Council Presidential Statement, agreed on 15 March, which called upon the parties to the conflict to agree the modalities for a cessation of hostilities. There is no military solution to the conflict and only a political solution can bring long-term stability to Yemen. During the visit of the Saudi Crown Prince to the UK in March, the UK and Saudi Arabia agreed on the importance of reaching a political solution to the crisis in Yemen and resolved to work closely together and with partners, including the newly appointed UN Special Envoy to Yemen to achieve this.</p> more like this

As the 15 March UN Security Council Presidential Statement made clear, this will require the full involvement of women and other under-represented groups to ensure that the process goes beyond politics and reflects the aspirations of all Yemenis.</p><p>The imperative of reaching a political solution to the conflict in Yemen was agreed in the Joint Declaration by the UK and Saudi Arabia during the visit of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia in March.

There is a small but real chance that a cessation of hostilities could alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.
