Yemen is one of the most serious humanitarian crises in the world. I regularly discuss the humanitarian situation and the risk of famine in Yemen with a wide range of interlocutors including the UN, international partners, Government of Yemen and humanitarian organisations. I most recently raised this with Saudi counterparts on Wednesday 29 March when I met with General Assiri, Advisor to the Saudi Defence Minister and Spokesman on the Saudi-led Coalition in Yemen.
