P3 Joint Statement on the Qena Port Attack

We, the ambassadors of France, the United Kingdom, and the United States, strongly condemn the November 9 Houthi terrorist attack targeting an oil tanker while it was docked at Yemen’s Qena port. By launching yet another assault on international shipping and the flow of fundamental necessities, the Houthis have once again demonstrated their abject failure to prioritize the Yemeni people. Attempting to deprive millions of Yemenis from accessing basic goods through economic warfare will only exacerbate the conflict and humanitarian crisis. We reiterate our call for the Houthis to immediately cease such attacks, respect their obligations under international law, and cooperate fully with UN-led efforts to establish long-term peace and stability for all Yemenis.
