Saudi Arabia – Missile fire (30 november 2017)

France condemns the firing of a missile on southern Saudi Arabia on November 30 by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

We stand with Saudi Arabia in the face of such threats and reaffirm our support for its security.

The Yemeni parties must resume negotiations without preconditions to reach a settlement in Yemen. France supports the mediation efforts of the UN secretary-general’s special envoy, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, to that end.
