The UK stands ready to support the UN on the implementation of the agreements reached between parties. On 16 January, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to back the UK-led Security Council Resolution 2452, which will establish a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire. This is an important step towards peace, building on the momentum of the unanimously adopted UK-led Security Council Resolution 2451 as well as the UN peace talks in Stockholm last month. We regularly discuss with our partners at the UN how best we can support the implementation of these agreements to ensure that the Yemen peace agreements endure, though this is by no means guaranteed.
