The UK takes international acts of terrorism seriously. As set out by the Foreign Secretary and Minister Cleverly on 17 January, the UK condemns in the strongest terms the attacks on the United Arab Emirates. We are in close contact with our Emirati partners and continue to offer our support to them including on maintaining their national security. We continue to work with the United Arab Emirates and other allies on agreeing a political and humanitarian solution for Yemen. We share concerns about the Houthis' continual attacks on civilians in Yemen and cross-border attacks against Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
