The Government has welcomed peace talks on Yemen which have started today in Kuwait. There are a number of factions and groups in the country which are currently trying to take military control.
Philip Hammond, the Foreign Secretary, said:
“Only a political solution can bring an end to the conflict in Yemen. Peace talks are an important first step on the road to a resolution, and provide the best opportunity to bring the peace and stability to Yemen that its people deserve.
I urge all those around the table to come together to find a way to end the conflict, address the humanitarian situation, and allow the return of Yemen’s legitimate government”.
