unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is playing a leading role in seeking a political solution to end the conflict and incalculable suffering in Yemen. 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

unstar this property answer text <p>We are in regular contact diplomatically and at Ministerial level with the United States, to ensure we follow the best opportunities for an end to the conflict in Yemen. On 16 January, the UN Security Council, including the US, voted unanimously to back the UK-led Security Council Resolution 2452, which will establish a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire. This is an important step towards peace, building on the momentum of the unanimously adopted UK-led Security Council Resolution 2451 as well as the UN peace talks in Stockholm last month. We regularly discuss with our partners at the UN, including the US, how best we can support the implementation of these agreements to ensure that the Yemen peace agreements endure, though this is by no means guaranteed.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>On 22 January the Foreign Secretary announced an additional £2.5 million in funding to bolster the Yemeni peace process, including operations in Hodeidah city and port. This will complement UK diplomatic support for the UN, including through UK-led Security Council Resolutions 2451 and 2452, which build on the momentum generated by UN peace talks in Stockholm in December. We continue to discuss with the UN what further support the UK could provide as UN planning develops. It is important that all parties take steps to implement the Hodeidah Agreement in accordance with the UN Redeployment Coordination Committee and ensure unhindered access to food, medical and commercial supplies through the port of Hodeidah.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We continue to advocate actively for the inclusion of women in the Yemeni peace process and encourage political actors to take women’s views into account. Through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) we support projects with UN Women which aim to increase Yemeni women’s capacity to influence political/conflict actors and the peace process, including through the Yemeni Women Pact. CSSF projects also support the inclusion of women in Track II political dialogue, and in local peacebuilding initiatives. During last month’s peace talks in Stockholm, UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths invited eight women, representing different political parties, civil society, activists and development workers in Yemen, to assist him during negotiations. Our Embassy also used our social media accounts in the run up to Stockholm to encourage the parties to include women in their delegations.</p><p>​</p> more like this
