The first formal meeting of EU foreign ministers of 2015 was dominated by discussions on how to fight terrorism in the wake of the Paris attacks and recent Boko Haram atrocities in Nigeria as well as a discussion on the EU's future relations with Russia.

Fighting in Sana’a since yesterday, especially around the Presidential palace, the targeting of Prime Minister Bahah's convoy and the attempt to besiege the Republican Palace where the Prime Minister held meetings clearly aim at derailing Yemen’s democratic transition under the Gulf Cooperation Council Initiative.


Thank you very much for the memories.  For the warm welcome, and also for the joint invitation.  It's a pleasure to be back here in Brookings.  Actually, I was in, I think, in another room next door less than a year ago.  It's a pleasure to meet again, friends.  Not only at Brookings.  I have to say, my student, a fellow in 2007, was one of the best and most important experiences of my life, and I would say that shows that the fellowship works. 

Les combats qui ont lieu à Sanaa depuis hier, en particulier autour du palais présidentiel, le fait que le convoi du Premier ministre, M. Bahaa, ait été pris pour cible et la tentative de prise d'assaut du Palais de la République, où le Premier ministre était en réunion, visent clairement à faire échouer la transition démocratique entreprise au Yémen dans le cadre de l'Initiative du Conseil de coopération du Golfe (CCG).
