The Security Council "condemned in the strongest terms the 3 December 3 bomb attack at the residence of the Iranian Ambassador to Yemen, which caused a number of deaths and casualties."
The members of the Security Council also condemned all types of violent actions against diplomatic premises, which put innocent people to risk and obstruct the work of diplomatic corps.
The Security Council urged that those responsible for the attack be held to account and called on other states to assist Yemen with this "under international law."
The press statement issued on Thursday also recalled the fundamental principles, according to which diplomatic and consular premises should remain inviolable, such as the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
On December 3, a suicide bomber carried out an explosion in Yemen's capital Sana'a by driving a car filled with explosives straight into the residence of the Iranian ambassador, which is situated in the city center. Three people died and at least 15 were injured in the explosion. Iranian ambassador Hossein Niknam was out of the residence during the attack.
