14 April 2015 Bloomberg News


Senior counsel Christopher Swift was quoted in a Bloomberg article, “UN Security Council Bans Arms Sales to Yemen’s Saleh, Houthi,” on April 14, 2015. The article discussed the United Nations Security Council vote to impose an arms embargo against Houthi leaders in Yemen. Swift described it as a calculated move, “Even if the Russians don’t particularly care what happens in Yemen, there’s still a value to them and value in terms of those nuclear talks, to have someone that’s talking to Tehran and speaking to them in more sympathetic terms.”
