Tabled 22 May 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that Yemen Day fell on 22 May 2019, marking Yemen's National Yemen Day and the 29th anniversary of the country's unification; is saddened that rather than celebrate this Yemenis continue to endure the brutal war that has lasted more than four years, killing over 70,000 people; believes that the implementation of a UN-led peace process is essential to bring stability to the country; further notes that a letter was sent to the Foreign Secretary calling for peace in Yemen signed by 86 officials from four chambers; deplores that over 19,000 airstrikes have hit Yemen, and the indiscriminate harm caused by landmines; and demands an immediate ceasefire in Yemen that can lead to a lasting peace.
