Yemen – Dissolution of Parliament (February 6, 2015)


As the UN Security Council did so on February 6, France expresses its deep concern following the new unilateral measures announced by the Ansarullah movement. It notably condemns the announcement that Parliament will be dissolved.

We call for the commitments made within the framework of the conference on national dialogue, the Gulf Initiative and the Peace and National Partnership Agreement of September 21 to be upheld and fully implemented.

France stresses the need to swiftly find a solution that will be supported by all Yemeni political parties in order to put an end to the crisis and to relaunch the transition process.

It calls for the swift resumption between all parties, in good faith and without preconditions, of the negotiations conducted by the UN secretary-general’s special advisor.
