star this property answer text <p>We are working with countries across the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf to reduce the threat from Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. 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

The Foreign Secretary will discuss a variety of regional and bilateral issues with his counterparts on any future visit to Iran. I made a statement on 9 November expressing concerns about reports that Iran has provided the Houthis with ballistic missiles, which threaten regional security and prolong the conflict.​​</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The conflict in Yemen has allowed terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda and Daesh to establish themselves and spread their message of violence and extremism. They continue to pose a threat to Yemen, the region and beyond. As the UK no longer maintains a presence on the ground in Yemen, we are working with partners to monitor the threat from these organisations and disrupt any attack planning. In the longer term, an enduring political settlement, strong security institutions and effective governance will be needed to deny terrorist organisations the space in which to operate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Saudi-led Coalition continues to seek to reinstate the legitimate government in Yemen and defend its own southern border against artillery and missile strikes by Houthi forces and those allied to former President Saleh. Sporadic fighting is taking place in western Yemen, including along the Saudi border, around Midi, north east of Sana'a and in the vicinity of Sirwah. We remain concerned by the ability of terrorist organisations such as Al Qaeda and Daesh to exploit ungoverned spaces in Yemen. The conflict has also resulted in security threats to international shipping in the Bab-el-Mandeb. Restarting peace talks remains the priority: a political solution is the best way to bring stability to Yemen and address the worsening humanitarian crisis. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to find a political solution to end the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Peace talks are the top priority. There is no military solution to the conflict and only a political solution can bring long-term stability to Yemen. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith. The UK has played a leading role in diplomatic efforts, including bringing together key actors to seek a peaceful solution. As part of this, I hosted a Ministerial-level meeting with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, US and UN Special Envoy at the UN General Assembly in September.</p><p>The UK also proposed the Presidential Statement passed at the UN Security Council in June this year, which called for an end to the fighting and a return to UN-led peace talks. We are now working with our international and regional partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action as a matter of urgency. We call on all parties to respect these unified and clear demands from the international community.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK supports the Saudi-led Coalition military intervention, which came at the request of legitimate President Hadi, to deter aggression by the Houthis, and allow for the return of the legitimate Yemeni government. We are aware of reports of alleged violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and we take these very seriously. It is important that credible allegations of violations of IHL are investigated. We regularly press the need for the Saudi-led Coalition to conduct thorough and conclusive investigations into reports of alleged violations of IHL. Saudi Arabia has publicly stated that it is investigating reports of alleged violations of IHL, and that lessons will be acted upon. We welcome the reports issued by the Joint Incidents Assessment Team, including the 15 reports issued on 12 September (taking the total number to 36). We will continue to press the Saudi-led Coalition to demonstrate its commitment to IHL.</p> more like this

The aim is to facilitate the return of the legitimate Yemeni government. The UK continues to play a leading role in supporting the UN’s efforts to facilitate a peaceful solution, including by bringing together leading regional and international players and through leadership in multilateral fora.
