star this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned about the humanitarian situation in Yemen. This is why we have increased UK aid to Yemen to £155 million for 2017-18, and have stepped up our work with UN agencies and other partner organisations to make sure that our aid is delivered to people in dire need. We regularly monitor and review our programmes and use independent experts to monitor and verify that food and supplies reach those in need.</p><p>As pen-holder on Yemen at the UN Security Council, the UK proposed and coordinated a Presidential Statement earlier this year, calling for all parties to recognise the importance of unhindered humanitarian access. The UK is also funding the UN’s Verification and Inspection Mechanism with £1.3 million in 2017-18 to ensure the unimpeded flow of commercial and humanitarian shipments into Yemen, as well as the UN’s Humanitarian Air Service with £1 million this year to support regular humanitarian flights into Yemen.</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

star this property answer text <p>The military intervention by the Saudi-led Coalition came at the request of President Hadi, who was forced to flee Sana’a when the city fell to the Houthi's. 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. In June the UK sponsored and coordinated a UN Security Council Presidential Statement, which called upon the parties to agree the modalities for a ceasefire, address the humanitarian crisis, and restart political talks. We are now working urgently with our partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are a number of measures in place to prevent the flow of arms into Yemen in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2216, including the UN Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (UNVIM) which the UK fully supports. In line with the UK-sponsored UN Security Council Presidential Statement, agreed on 15 June, the Government is engaged in efforts to increase commercial and humanitarian shipments through Yemeni ports and airports. We are discussing short-term options to improve port infrastructure in Al Hudaydah and other ports with regional countries, the US and the UN, including cranes, inspection and improving commercial access. We are also monitoring port capacity across the country. We continue to push for increased access to Sana’a Airport for lifesaving humanitarian supplies and movement of urgent humanitarian cases. We call on all parties to respect these clear demands from the international community.</p> more like this
