Yemen – Temporary closure of our embassy in Sana from February 13, 2015


Given the political crisis facing Yemen and the deteriorating security situation, Laurent Fabius has taken the decision to temporarily close our embassy in Sana.

This decision will take effect on February 13.

We are in close contact with the French community in Yemen; we recommend that they leave the country as soon as possible.

France reaffirms its attachment to Yemen’s stability and unity. It supports the negotiations conducted by UN Special Adviser Jamal Benomar aimed at relaunching a transition process in accordance with the road map drawn up by the international community.
