In addition to UK personnel wholly providing support for British-supplied equipment, we have a small number of liaison personnel in Saudi coalition Headquarters, including the Maritime Coalition Co-ordination Centre that supports the enablement of humanatarian aid into Yemen. There are no UK aircraft or training in direct support of Saudi operations. We continue to supply equipment that conforms to our export criteria.
