France condemns the indiscriminate missile attacks against the cities of Riyadh and Jazan on March 28. While priority must be given to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the continuation of the hostilities is exacerbating the human toll of the conflict in Yemen, which is entering its sixth year, and diminishing prospects for finding a political solution.
France calls on all parties to respond to the appeal for a comprehensive ceasefire launched by the UN secretary-general within the framework of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and to initiate talks to resolve the crisis.
The resumption of discussions on a comprehensive and inclusive political agreement is the only real way to put an end to the conflict in Yemen. France reaffirms its support for the UN’s efforts to that end.
