Saudi Arabia Under Pressure To End War In Yemen

Posted on November 5, 2018

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on Monday criticised both the Saudi-led coalition and opposition Houthi rebels backed by Iran, saying: “For too long in the Yemen conflict both sides have believed a military solution is possible, with catastrophic consequences for the people.” The remarks are some of the government’s strongest criticism yet of Britain’s long-term ally and come in the face of increasing pressure – so far resisted – to halt British arms sales to Riyadh. Mr Hunt said the UK was talking to the other 14 Security Council member states about increasing action to help the population of the decimated Arab state, which has been torn apart by sectarian fighting since 2015.
