LONDON: Britain has appointed a senior Saudi-based diplomat as its new ambassador to Yemen.
Richard Oppenheim, the current deputy head of the UK’s Riyadh mission, will take over from Michael Aron in July, the Foreign Office said on Wednesday.
Aron has held the position since February 2018 — a period in which Yemen continued to struggle through a devastating conflict.
