Martin Griffith's Appointment As UN Special Envoy To Yemen

EDM number 985 in 2017-19, proposed by Keith Vaz on 27/02/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Middle East and United Nations.

That this House welcomes the appointment of Martin Griffths to the position of UN Special Envoy to Yemen; recognises the vast experience that Martin has acquired over years of service developing political dialogue between governments and insurgents in a range of countries across Asia, Africa and Europe; notes that the current UN Resolution 2216 no longer accurately reflects the situation on the ground in Yemen and will be an impediment to peace talks; and calls on the Government to introduce a new UN Security Council Resolution at the UN Security Council.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
