The UK raises regularly the importance of protecting civilians and complying with International Humanitarian Law with members of the Saudi-led Coalition. Most recently, I discussed the escalating violence in Yemen and its impact on civilians with the Saudi Ambassador to Yemen on 26 January. We urge all parties to exercise restraint and avoid further civilian casualties and suffering.
