Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL12360, tabled on 20 January 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to prioritise seeking the reversal of the designation of the Houthi movement as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation by the government of the United States in their discussions with the new government of that country.

We share the concerns raised by the UN and NGOs about the impact of designation on what is already the world's worst humanitarian crisis. We have already engaged with the US to urge them to ensure that the vital humanitarian response, including food supplies, are not disrupted and aim to raise this urgently with the new administration.
