||<p>The UK fully supports the efforts of the UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould
Cheikh Ahmed, and his tireless efforts in working with all parties to bring about
peace in Yemen. We deeply regret the failure of the parties to reach an agreement
in Kuwait and we urge them to find the compromises that will end the current conflict.
Our Ambassador to Yemen and other personnel were present at the Kuwait talks, however
the Ambassador and other members of the international community did not participate
directly in the talks.</p>
