Yemen – United Nations – Unanimous adoption of a Security Council resolution (15 February 2015)


The United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution yesterday urging all the parties to respect the achievements of the transition launched in 2011 with the support of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.

The resolution asks the parties to speed up negotiations with a view to finding a political solution to the crisis and relaunching the country’s constitutional process. It requires the Houthis to engage willingly in the mediation facilitated by the United Nations, withdraw their forces from the government institutions and refrain from further unilateral action.

France reiterates its full support for the efforts of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Adviser for Yemen, Jamal Benomar.
