Yemen – Violence (19 January 2015)


France is concerned about the current armed clashes in the vicinity of the presidential palace in Sana’a. It calls for an immediate halt to the violence and the implementation of a ceasefire agreement.

We reaffirm, in conjunction with our G10 partners, our support for President Hadi and the Yemeni government, guarantor of the country’s unity and the continuity of the institutions. We call for the immediate, unconditional release of Mr Bin Mubarak, the head of the President’s office.

France supports the restarting of dialogue between all the political parties and calls for the political transition to be resumed through the swift adoption of a constitution, in the framework of the peace agreement of 21 September and on the basis of the national dialogue conference’s conclusions.
