Yemen – Ceasefire (April 10, 2016)


France welcomes the entry into force of a ceasefire in Yemen on April 10, which is an essential first step ahead of the peace negotiations scheduled to start in Kuwait on April 18.

The populations must be able to receive the humanitarian assistance they need.

We call on all Yemeni parties to engage in the talks in a constructive manner, without preconditions; we lend our full support to the special envoy of the UN secretary-general in conducting these negotiations.
