It is vital that all parties to the conflict make every effort to promote and protect human rights. Yemen remains a human rights priority country for the UK. In the 2018 Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Human Rights and Democracy Report, we highlighted our concerns over women’s rights including girls’ education, the recruitment of child soldiers, arbitrary detention, and attacks on freedom of religion or belief and on freedom of speech and association. We have raised the FCO's report directly with the Human Rights Minister for the Government of Yemen, voicing our concerns. We will continue to work with all parties and international partners, including the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, to find a political solution to the conflict, in order to create the conditions to improve and protect human rights in Yemen.​</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Implementing the Hodeidah Agreement remains a critical step towards the broader peace process. We have welcomed Houthi redeployments as a crucial first step in the plan to implement the Hodeidah Agreement as well as the parties’ agreement on the Concept of Operations for Phase 1 and 2 of the mutual redeployments. Further UN-led negotiations between the parties are needed to agree local security force arrangements before redeployment can take place and we encourage all parties to continue to constructively engage with the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and General Lollesgaard on this matter. Implementation of the Hodeidah Agreement is part of critical step moving towards the broader peace process. British officials are also in regular contact with key Yemeni and regional figures in support of UN efforts. We also continue to warn that any renewed military activity in Hodeidah would be catastrophic for Yemen, potentially pushing millions into famine.</p> more like this

We are aware that Yasir Arman has been deported to South Sudan. We urge restraint and condemn any acts of violence. The UK also calls for the legitimate demands of Sudanese people to be respected. Violence must not be used, including against opponents. Sudanese people should not be faced with the threat of arbitrary detention. We continue to call upon the Sudanese authorities that all detainees should be treated in accordance with international standards. Our Ambassador in Khartoum made clear to the Deputy Chair of the Transitional Military Committee, on April 15, the steps that needed to be taken to improve the situation in Sudan, including the release of all political detainees. We also engage regularly with civil society groups on the issue of detainee treatment.</p> more like this
