Securing a peace settlement to end the conflict is the Government’s top priority in Yemen. We continue to provide financial and diplomatic support to the UN Special Envoy’s efforts to agree a negotiated solution. The UK has played a leading role in working with the US, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Oman to find a peaceful solution. We will continue to seek regional consensus on the way forward, and to encourage the Yemeni parties to the conflict to engage constructively and in good faith find a political solution.
