Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood condemns bomb attack and highlights need to support stability in Yemen.
In response to today’s bomb attack in the Yemeni capital Sana’a, Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood said:
I condemn today’s bomb attack at the residence of the Iranian Ambassador to Yemen, which caused a number of deaths and casualties. I offer my condolences to the families and friends of those killed and injured.
The international community plays a key role in supporting Yemen’s transition, and I condemn such violent attacks, including against diplomatic missions. We must all work together to support stability and the political transition in Yemen. I reiterate the UK’s support for President Hadi and the new government to implement the Peace and National Partnership Agreement, the National Dialogue Conference Outcomes and the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative and Implementation Mechanism.
