Yemen – Launch of peace talks (April 22, 2016)


France welcomes the launch of inter-Yemeni negotiations in Kuwait.

We reaffirm our full support for the work of Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.

France calls on all parties to work in good faith and without preconditions toward a political solution within the framework of UNSCR 2216, the Gulf Cooperation Council’s initiative, and the conclusions of the conference on national dialogue.

In order to put an end to the suffering of the civilian populations, the ceasefire must be fully respected and the populations must have unimpeded access to the humanitarian assistance they need.
