star this property answer text <p>The UN-brokered ceasefire in and around Hodeidah is broadly holding, but we are conscious that confidence between the parties is low. The ceasefire is an important step towards peace but is by no means guaranteed. It is vital that all parties act in good faith and take urgent steps to implement agreements made in Stockholm, particularly re-deployment. We regularly discuss with our partners at the UN how best we can support the implementation of these agreements to ensure that the Yemen peace agreements endure.</p> more like this

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.

We continue to support UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and the UN-led peace process. All parties have reaffirmed their support for the peace process and the Government of Yemen have agreed to the UN redeployment plan but, at this stage, the Houthis have not agreed to the UN plan. It is important that neither side exploits the redeployment process. We urge all parties to co-operate with the Special Envoy and act in good faith to implement the agreements made in Stockholm, including the redeployment of military personnel.</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
