The Argentine Government condemns the new launch of a ballistic missile from Yemenite territory towards Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on 19 December.

In the face of this new act of violence, the Argentine Republic reiterates the pressing need to reach a political and negotiated agreement in Yemen, based on the relevant resolutions of the United Nations and, especially, on the efforts of the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismael Ouid Cheikh Ahmed.
