To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether the Government has responded to the 9 September 2020 report of the UN Group of Eminent International and Regional Experts on Yemen; and if he will make a statement.
21 September 2020
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has reviewed the latest report by the UN Group of Eminent Experts on Yemen and we are deeply concerned by its findings. We urge the parties to the conflict to cooperate fully with the Group's work, and to promote and protect human rights and International Humanitarian Law (IHL) in Yemen. Yemen is a Human Rights Priority Country for the FCDO. We take the alleged violations of IHL and violations and abuses of human rights in the report extremely seriously.
