“I welcome the announcement of a two month truce in Yemen, and commend all those who have worked tirelessly to bring about this agreement, particularly UN Special Envoy Grundberg and his office.
“The people of Yemen have suffered for far too long, and this truce can bring much needed respite from violence. We urge all parties to respect their undertakings in full.
“This truce can give renewed impetus to securing a comprehensive settlement to the conflict in Yemen. Ireland strongly supports the efforts of the UN to bring an end to the conflict, and urges all parties to the conflict to engage urgently and seriously with these efforts.”
