EU welcomes Yemeni political parties' return to dialogue
[10/February/2015]

BRUSSELS, Feb. 10 (Saba) – The European Union (EU) has welcomed the resumption of inclusive negotiations between the Yemeni political parties under UN auspices.

In a statement issued Monday at the conclusion of their meeting in Brussels, the EU Foreign Ministers urged all parties to return to genuine dialogue and inclusive negotiation, in particular those conducted by the United Nations.

They called on all political forces to take responsibility for their actions, starting by unequivocally rejecting violence and coercion as political tools.

"The EU is following up with deep concern the recent developments in Yemen in light of the violence witnessed by Sana'a, Marib and several other provinces, which led to the announcement of the resignations of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi and of Prime Minister Khaled Bahah and his Cabinet on 22 January", the statement said.

Those developments are hindering prospects for a prosperous, stable, democratic and united Yemen, threatening the territorial integrity of the country and the stability of the region and exacerbating an already dire humanitarian situation, it added.

The statement stressed the importance of respect for the State institutions, recalling that only a broad political consensus amongst the main political forces and setting a clear path towards a Constitutional referendum and elections can provide a sustainable solution to the current crisis.

"The framework provided by the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative, the National Dialogue Conference's (NDC) outcomes and the Peace and National Partnership Agreement should remain the reference points for the Yemeni transition", the statement said calling on all regional actors to contribute positively to this process.

In their statement, the EU foreign ministers urged all actors to work constructively towards a swift finalization of a new Constitution which meets the legitimate aspirations of the Yemeni people, reflects the NDC outcomes, and preserves the unity and territorial integrity of Yemen to which the EU is strongly attached.

They stressed on the need for a stable and legitimate political framework to enact much needed economic reforms, including by taking decisive actions to improve fiscal sustainability, combating corruption in the public administration and supporting those most in need.

The EU ministers warned that the severe humanitarian crisis in Yemen may further deepen if political stability is not restored, urging all parties to safeguard humanitarian principles and ensure humanitarian access on the ground.

The ministers expressed deep concern about intensified terrorist attacks, including by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) within Yemen. They reiterated the EU's condemnation of such terrorist attacks in the strongest terms, confirming its firm commitment and enduring determination to tackle the terrorist violence in Yemen and the broader region.

Concluding their statement, the ministers noted that the EU would continue to closely follow up the situation in Yemen and stand by the Yemeni people at this critical juncture and reaffirmed its commitment to continue supporting Yemen in its transition.
