The Ministerial Council called upon the UN Security Council and international community with the followings:
- Urging the UN Security Council (UNSC) members to adopt a resolution under Chapter VII of UN Charter over the Houthis' "illegitimate" seizure of power.
- Taking urgent actions to ensure safety and health of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi and Prime Minister Khalid Bahah, ministers and officials and release them.
- Supporting resumption of the process of peaceful transition of power in Yemen according to the GCC initiative and its executive mechanism and outputs of the National Dialogue Conference, as well as implementation of Security Council resolution 2140 (2014) adopted under Chapter VII of UN Charter regarding imposing sanctions against anyone hampering the process of peaceful transition of power.
The GCC states are looking forward that efforts taken by the United Nations in Yemen lead to agreement of all parties in Yemen to bypass this crisis based on the following grounds:
1 - Maintaining legitimacy.
2 - Resumption of the political process in accordance with GCC initiative and its executive mechanism and ensuring implementation of the national dialogue's outputs.
In a case of failure to reach an agreement on what was mentioned, the GCC Member States will take measures which enable them to maintain their vital interests in the security and stability of Yemen, and help the brotherly people of Yemen to get out of these serious events in order to maintain Yemen's security, stability and unity and region's security and stability as well.
