Gulf States Urge U.N. To Enforce Resolution In Yemen

GCC members urged the Council to pass a resolution, which authorises the use of military force or economic sanctions to enforce Council resolutions.

Gulf foreign ministers on Saturday urged the United Nations Security Council to authorise coercive measures to try to resolve the crisis in Yemen, the Saudi-owned news channel Al Arabiya reported.

An emergency meeting of members of the Gulf Cooperation Council urged the Council to pass a “Chapter 7” resolution, which authorises the use of military force or economic sanctions to enforce Council resolutions, the channel said.

A Shi’ite Muslim militia formally took power in impoverished and strife-torn Yemen this month, in a move that its energy-rich Sunni Muslim Gulf neighbours have denounced as a coup.
