We regularly raise the importance of ensuring unrestricted humanitarian access with the Government of Saudi Arabia. The Foreign Secretary discussed this issue most recently with Saudi Foreign Minister Al Jubeir on 5 September. We call upon all parties to the conflict to improve humanitarian access to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people. The UK sponsored a UN Security Council Presidential Statement with words to that effect which was agreed on 15 June.
