"The situation in Yemen is worrying"
Yemen - Remarks to the press by Mr François Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations - 31 August 2016
The situation in Yemen is worrying, both on the humanitarian front and on the cessation of hostilities front.
In this context we have one priority – this priority is critically important: it is to support the efforts by the special envoy Cheikh Ahmed, who does a great job. We believe the Security Council has the responsibility at this critical juncture in Yemen to express its support to Cheikh Ahmed and his action. So for us, this is the priority today.
