Conflict in Yemen

International relations

The Australian Government urges all combatants in Yemen to establish a cease-fire and negotiate a permanent end to the conflict.

The Government is particularly concerned about the welfare of civilians caught up in the fighting and calls upon armed groups to show restraint. Australia recognises the legitimacy of the government of President Hadi and calls upon the Houthis to return to the negotiating table.
