Yemen - Suspension of inter-Yemeni peace talks (August 6, 2016)


France takes note of the UN’s notice of the suspension of the inter-Yemeni peace negotiations in Kuwait.

It calls on the parties to reaffirm their commitment to seeking a lasting and inclusive political solution and to swiftly resume their negotiations to that end.

France also asks the parties to respect the now-weakened ceasefire, as it alone can improve the humanitarian situation and ease the suffering of the Yemeni people

We reiterate our support for the mediation effort led by the UN secretary-general’s special envoy, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
