Security Council - UK Draft statement on Yemen

The members of the Security Council deeply regret the breakdown of UN-led negotiations in Yemen.
The members of the Security Council condemn the unilateral action taken by the Houthis, including the breaking off of talks and the unilateral taking over of all government institutions.
The members of the Security Council call in the strongest terms for all parties, in particular the Houthis, to abide by the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative, the National Dialogue Conference Outcomes and the Peace and Partnership Agreement, which provide for a Yemeni-led democratic transition.
The members of the Security Council declare their readiness to take further steps if UN-led negotiations are not immediately resumed.
The members of the Security Council reaffirm their commitment to the territorial integrity, unity and sovereignty of Yemen.
The members of the Security Council call for the immediate release of President Hadi, Prime Minister Bahah and members of the Cabinet from house arrest.

The members of the Security Council express their appreciation and reaffirm their full support for and commitment to the work of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Yemen, Jamal Benomar, in support of the Yemeni transition process.
