Statements by the Spokesperson

The Yemen conflict is seeing yet another worrying military escalation. The European Union condemns the recurrent cross-border attacks by Houthi forces on Saudi Arabia, most recently with a ballistic missile targeting Riyadh on Monday. The ongoing fighting must stop, notably attacks that put at risk lives of civilians and critical infrastructure providing a lifeline to the people in the country.

The EU urges all parties to support the UN-led peace process in Yemen aiming to achieve a comprehensive political agreement.
