Any worsening of the instability, terrorist activity and poverty present in Yemen will have a detrimental effect on security-within Yemen and in the region. The meeting in London on 27 January 2010 is part of our wider strategy towards Yemen, which aims to work with the international community to support the efforts of the Yemeni Government to address the fundamental problems it is facing.
