Remarks to the press by Ambassador Wittig after the UN Security Council meeting on Yemen

Apr 19, 2011

(as delivered)

This was the first time that the Council pondered about the situation in Yemen. It's a first - that's a progress.

We heard a briefing by the Secretariat, we expressed concern about the situation in Yemen, which is
deteriorating. We called for restraint and we appealed to the parties to enter into a dialogue and most of us in the Council expressed explicitly
the support for the mediation efforts of the Gulf Corporation Council, which is meeting today and tomorrow.
