Conflict, including that in Yemen, allows terrorist organisations to establish themselves and spread their message of violence and extremism. We continue to work with our partners, including those in the Gulf, to deny terrorist organisations the space in which to operate. We are also playing a major role in supporting a resolution of the conflict to further reduce risks to the UK.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Red Sea Ports are currently operational and continue to import most of the food and fuel on which Yemenis rely. For most of this year imports have been robust and in some cases exceeded pre-war levels. We are however concerned about recent reports of a reduction of imports into Yemen.</p><p> </p><p>To maintain confidence of commercial importers, the UK recently worked with the US, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates to agree measures with the Central Bank of Yemen to issue letters of credit to provide foreign currency so that importers can purchase food on international markets. This will help strengthen imports. It has also resulted in an appreciation of the Yemeni Riyal, increasing the purchasing power of ordinary Yemenis.</p><p> </p><p>It is imperative the Red Sea ports of Hodeidah and Saleef remain operational. Yemen relies on imports to meet 90% of its basic needs like food and fuel. We therefore welcome the positive outcomes of peace talks in Stockholm. A political settlement is the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen and to address the worsening humanitarian crisis.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned by the findings of the UN Panel of Experts on Yemen that missiles, and related military equipment of Iranian origin, were introduced into Yemen after the imposition of the targeted arms embargo. As the Panel concluded, this puts Iran in non-compliance with UN Security Council Resolution 2216 (2015) and reaffirms our concerns about destabilising Iranian activity in Yemen and the wider region. We call on Iran to cease such activity, which risks escalating the conflict, and to support a political solution to the conflict in Yemen.</p><p>The UK is providing £1.3 million to help the UN's Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) to facilitate commercial imports into Hodeidah and Saleef ports by giving the Coalition confidence that weapons are not coming in on commercial ships. Alongside this financial support, we have also deployed UK experts to support the inspections of ships in Djibouti, increasing the proportion of physical inspections ten-fold.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Saudi-led Coalition restrictions on the Red Sea ports of Hodeidah and Saleef (following the Houthi ballistic missile attack on Riyadh on 4 November) were eased on 20 December 2017 and in April imports of fuel rose for the third month in a row, helping to keep critical water treatment plants and clean water trucks running across the country. However, on-going conflict and obstructions are preventing clean water trucks from regularly reaching those in need, particularly in Houthi controlled areas. Furthermore, vital water and sanitation services are close to collapse due to the non-payment of salaries to public sector workers. The UN estimates that, in total, some 16 million people across Yemen lack access to clean water and sanitation.</p><p> </p><p>The UK continues to call on all parties to the conflict to allow unhindered commercial and humanitarian access throughout Yemen, including for water and fuel. In addition, the UK’s support of £170 million to Yemen in the financial year 2018/19 includes funding to programmes that provide clean water in Yemen. In the last financial year of 2017/18, our funding of £205 million to Yemen provided clean water and sanitation for an expected 1.2 million people.</p>
