On Monday (18th February) the Council approved the conclusions on Yemen. The EU renewed its engagement to harmony, sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence of Yemen.
The EU accepts and appreciates the “Stockholm Agreement” that was reached between delegates of the Yemen’s conflicting parties under the aegis of the United Nations in December 2018. The EU and its member states will carry on to involve actively with all the parties of the conflict and are devoted to further back the UN-led political process, which includes through political discourse with appropriate regional actors, with the goal of continuing to generate tangible results, bringing an end to the conflict and promoting an improved regional environment.
As per the conclusion reached, the EU renews that only a brokered and inclusive political solution can conclude the Yemen’s conflict. The EU urges all parties to maintain their pledge to the UN-led process in view of the forthcoming discussions, and repeats that sustainable peace can only be attained through discussions which involve the significant participation of all parties involved, which includes civil society, youth, and women.
At this serious juncture for the future of Yemen, the Council restates the EU’s full support for the UN-led political peace process and the work of UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and of the United Nations mission to back the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA).
