​The Foreign Secretary and I have raised Yemen regularly with Saudi, Emirati, Omani and US counterparts in recent months. I spoke to Saudi Foreign Minister Al-Jubeir; Emirati Foreign Minister Gargash and US Defence Secretary Mattis on 28 October in the margins of the Manama Dialogue about how we can end the conflict. The former Foreign Secretary hosted the last meeting of the Quint on 28 November 2017 and the Foreign Secretary most recently hosted a meeting of the Quad (UK, US, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates) on 27 September in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, to make progress towards a peaceful solution to the conflict.
