A UN Security Council resolution is one of the means we are pursuing in order to achieve a lasting political and humanitarian solution. Discussions on the resolution are ongoing and we will put it to a vote at the point that best delivers for the people of Yemen. We welcome the beginning of proceedings in Stockholm for meaningful talks hosted by the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths. We encourage both sides to engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict. We are determined to use the window of opportunity before us to make progress towards ending the conflict in Yemen.
