White Paper: Saudi Arabia and the Yemen Conflict

White paper


Full Paper: Saudi Arabia and the Yemen Conflict – April 2017
The paper is also summarised in a three-page Executive Summary


Yemen has been in a state of political and economic turmoil since the illegal ousting of President Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi in 2015. Two years later, the country finds itself in the midst of a deep humanitarian crisis. There is no doubt that the people of Yemen deserve to live in a nation at peace with itself where they can build a future for themselves and future generations. A peaceful and stable Yemen is also essential for Yemen’s neighbours and the entire global community, to secure the region from terrorism and keep the region safe for international trade and transport.


Saudi Arabia and its GCC allies—with the close cooperation of the United States and European nations—have led an effort to restore the legitimate government of Yemen and negotiate a peaceful solution to the crisis at hand. In a new white paper, Saudi Arabia details the history and hard facts about the crisis in Yemen and offers its comprehensive response to the deplorable state of affairs in the country.
