While Ministers did not meet President Hadi during the EU-Arab Summit on 24 February 2019, I did meet him on 19 February. I also met Yemen's Foreign Minister, al-Yamani, at the Summit.

The UK is playing a leading role in efforts to promote peace and implement the confidence building measures agreed in Stockholm in December. We remain in close contact with all the key parties, including the Government of Yemen, to work together towards a diplomatic solution to the conflict.
