​The Goverment remains committed to supporting the UN Special Envoy's efforts to end the conflict in Yemen, including through diplomatic engagement with the parties to the conflict and countries in the region. The Foreign Secretary met the foreign ministers of the United States, United Arab Emirates and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 27 September at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The Foreign Secretary urged a renewed push for political progress and discussed how to put in place confidence-building measures. Through the cross-government Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, the Government is providing funding to the UN Special Envoy's office to bolster UN capacity to facilitate the peace process.
