star this property answer text <p>The British Government is concerned at reports of fighting in Damt in recent weeks. Damt is assessed by the UN as experiencing high access constraints, meaning humanitarian operations are faced with great difficulty in delivering assistance due to active conflict, insecurity and bureaucratic impediments. We continue to urge all parties to the conflict to do all they can facilitate rapid, safe and unhindered humanitarian access across the country.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We continue to advocate actively for the inclusion of women in the Yemeni peace process and encourage political actors to take women’s views into account. Through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) we support projects with UN Women which aim to increase Yemeni women’s capacity to influence political/conflict actors and the peace process, including through the Yemeni Women Pact. CSSF projects also support the inclusion of women in Track II political dialogue, and in local peacebuilding initiatives. During last month’s peace talks in Stockholm, UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths invited eight women, representing different political parties, civil society, activists and development workers in Yemen, to assist him during negotiations. Our Embassy also used our social media accounts in the run up to Stockholm to encourage the parties to include women in their delegations.</p><p>​</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since it came into effect in Hodeidah on 18 December, the fragile ceasefire has continued to hold and there has been a general de-escalation by both sides around the city. We are aware of reports of frontline incidents and skirmishing but these remain low. We urge all parties to support and facilitate the UN’s efforts and to implement the redeployment of forces in Hodeidah as agreed during the Stockholm talks. We welcome the arrival of General Patrick Cammaert, Head of the UN Redeployment Coordination Committee, and welcome the UK-drafted UN Security Council Resolution 2452 establishing a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire.</p><p>​</p> more like this

Our Ambassador is continuing to press the Iranian authorities for further information.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary and I raised a number of bilateral issues, including all our dual-national consular cases, with our Iranian counterparts in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in September. Iran’s position on dual nationality makes progress on our consular cases difficult; nonetheless we continue to raise these cases with the Iranian authorities at the highest levels and at every available opportunity. We assess that the approach we currently take is the one that is the most likely to be in the best interests of each of our dual-national prisoners in Iran.</p> more like this
