The United States extends our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives during recent protests in Sana’a. We have long condemned the use of violence during this period of upheaval and reject any actions that undermine productive efforts underway to achieve a peaceful political resolution to the current crisis in Yemen. We call upon all parties to exercise restraint and refrain from further violence. We urge a prompt, impartial investigation into the events that led to the recent violence.
The United States continues to support the Yemeni people’s aspirations for a peaceful and orderly transition that is responsive to their aspirations for peace, reconciliation, prosperity, and security. A political solution is the best way to avoid further bloodshed. We remain hopeful that an agreement will be reached that leads to the expeditious signing of the GCC political transition initiative.
