Yemen – Attack on a military camp in Marib (18 Jan. 2020)


France deplores the resumption of clashes in Yemen in recent days, particularly the attack on a military camp in Marib, western Yemen, which killed at least 70 people.

After several weeks of calm, this resumption of hostilities threatens ongoing efforts to bring peace. France calls for an end to the current escalation, to enable these efforts to continue.

The unconditional relaunch of talks on a comprehensive, inclusive political agreement is the only solution for ending the conflict in Yemen. France reaffirms its support for the resumption of such negotiations, under the aegis of the United Nations Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths.
