The Federal Foreign Office strongly condemns yesterday’s attack on civilians and civilian facilities in the United Arab Emirates, in which three people were killed and six more were injured. Our sympathy goes out to the victims and their families. The attack by Houthi rebels represents a further escalation which poses a threat to stability in the region.
We call on the parties to the conflict in Yemen to work constructively towards a political solution to the conflict under the auspices of the United Nations by cooperating with Hans Grundberg, Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Yemen. The German Government will continue to support the Special Envoy’s work both financially and politically.
