​We remain deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Yemen. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights plays a vital role in objectively monitoring and reporting on human rights in Yemen. The UK welcomes the Government of Yemen's commitment to cooperate with the UN on the protection of human rights.
