The Foreign Ministry welcomes the approval by the UN Security Council of Resolution 2014 condemning the use of violence by the Yemeni regime. Indeed, the unanimous vote has underscored the shared principles and views held by the international community with respect to the persisting situation in Yemen.
Italy supports the request asking President Saleh to sign a political agreement based on the Gulf Cooperation Council’s initiative and to implement it immediately and in concrete form. This would bring an end to the violence and make it possible to step up the democratic transition process. The legitimate, democratic requests of the Yemeni people remain crucial to the country’s future and must not be ignored by the government.
