star this property answer text <p>The UK is playing a leading role in diplomatic efforts, including bringing together key international actors to try to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Yemen. As part of this we 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 urgently with our international and regional partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action. We call on all parties to respect these unified and clear demands from the international community. More recently, the Foreign Secretary hosted a meeting of his US, Saudi and Emirati counterparts in our Embassy in Paris on 23 January. They discussed ways of addressing the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, countering weapons smuggling and refocusing the political track to move towards a peaceful solution to the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A political settlement remains the only means for bringing long-term stability to Yemen – there is no military solution to the conflict. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. The Foreign Secretary discusses the military and political situation in Yemen with the Foreign Ministers of the United States of America, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia regularly, and most recently on 23 January at our Embassy in Paris. In June last year the UK sponsored and coordinated a UN Security Council Presidential Statement, agreed on 15 June, which called upon the parties to the conflict to agree the modalities for a ceasefire, take steps to address the humanitarian crisis and restart political talks. We are now working urgently with our international and regional partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action. We support the appointment of the new UN Special Envoy for Yemen, and will work urgently to assist his efforts.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We are concerned by reports of the recent comments made about the Baha’i community by representatives of the Houthis. The Government of Yemen does not have any influence over the activities of the Houthis, who overthrew the legitimate Government of Yemen in Sana’a in 2015. We work with our international partners to raise concerns about the situation of the Baha’i community with the Houthis. We urge compliance with the UN Human Rights Council resolution of September 2017 which calls for the release of all Baha’i in detention and end to harassment of the community. We remain closely engaged with representatives of the Baha'i community in the UK. I met their representatives most recently in January, and the Minister for Human Rights held a similar meeting in March.</p> more like this
