Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In response to the fighting in Sana’a, Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood said:

    I am deeply concerned about the situation in Yemen. I urge all parties to step back from conflict in Sana’a, Marib and other parts of the country and ensure a ceasefire holds. Those who use violence and the threat of violence and use others to promote violence to dictate Yemen’s future are undermining the security of all Yemen’s citizens and eroding the progress made since 2011 to set Yemen on a new course.

    The UK remains committed to supporting President Hadi, his government and the integrity of the Yemeni state. I encourage all parties to peacefully work together to implement and enforce a ceasefire and return to dialogue within the framework of the GCC Initiative, National Dialogue Outcomes and the Peace and National Partnership Agreement. In this context, I call on all parties to work through the National Body to rapidly agree a new constitution, taking into account the National Dialogue Outcomes and the results of the public consultation.
