We remain very concerned about access for commercial and humanitarian shipping in Yemen. The UK
has made clear to all parties that access for commercial goods and humanitarian aid, including via Hodeidah port, must be improved, and emphasised the importance of the non-politicisation of aid. The UK is also supporting the UN
in working with the Saudi Arabian-led coalition and Government of Yemen
to make the system for verifying shipping more efficient. The UK has so far announced £75 million in humanitarian aid – delivered through UN agencies and humanitarian NGOs
- to support Yemenis affected by the crisis.
