(3 Mar 2019) Britain’s foreign secretary is warning of a collapse of peace deals in Yemen.
Jeremy Hunt made his comments on Sunday during a visit to the southern city of Aden, the first to Yemen by a Western foreign minister since the start of the conflict in 2015.
Yemeni Foreign Minister Khaled al-Yamani thanked the UK for its support and stressed that the government was trying to work for the “entire nation”, including areas held by Houthi revels.
Yemen’s internationally recognized government and Houthi rebels agreed to a cease-fire in Hodeida in December, as well as a prisoner exchange that has yet to take place. Both sides have traded accusations of hindering the deals.
Yemen has been embroiled in a stalemated war since March 2015.
