Yemen – Riyadh agreement (5 November 2019)

France welcomes the signing of the Riyadh agreement by the government of Yemen and the Southern Transitional Council. This move was made possible by Saudi Arabia, which instigated and hosted this dialogue in Jeddah.

It represents an important step toward preserving Yemen’s unity and territorial integrity, a necessary prerequisite for the resumption of negotiations to end the crisis and including all elements of Yemeni society.

France is mobilizing all its efforts to achieve a comprehensive, inclusive solution to the Yemeni conflict, in the broader context of its regional de-escalation efforts.
