On 26 February 2018, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted UNSCR 2402 (2018) on Yemen which renewed until 26 February 2019 the travel ban and assets freeze first imposed in UNSCR 2140 (2014). It also reaffirmed the arms embargo — as laid out in UNSCR 2216 (2015) — against several individuals, including former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. It extended until 28 March 2019 the Panel of Experts’ mandate.[1]

The text of UNSCR 2402, submitted by the Russian Federation, prevailed over another tabled by the United Kingdom, which was defeated by a vote of 11 in favour to 2 against (Bolivia, Russian Federation) with 2 abstentions (China, Kazakhstan).[2]

Humanitarian intervention“Suddenly, children in Syria matter a lot to the West, while Yemen's child victims are rarely ever mentioned. Suddenly there’s an urgent moral issue being rushed through the court of public opinion. This has all the hallmarks of the prior propaganda campaigns we’ve seen before. Scant evidence, immediate assignment of blame, and a quick rush to military action before anybody can really properly question the train of events.”'Tyler Durden'14 April 2018
