Baraa Shiban, associate fellow with the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) think tank, told PoliticsHome that he felt the UK has “no policy on Yemen”. “The UK and the US are usually short-sighted, there is no long-term strategy,” he said. “The UK can make more of an effort to work with Yemen as a whole entity. If we see the Yemeni state eroding, that could be bad for everyone… We can ignore the region but the problems are not going away. We can say we support a peaceful transition, but we need something more consistent.”
