Iran Takes Action to Stop War in Yemen: Official
KABUL: (Middle East Press) Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Sunday the Islamic Republic is keenly taking action to stop Saudi Arabia’s violence against Yemen by focusing on political solutions and transmitting humanitarian assistance.
“A humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding in Yemen, and the siege of the country as well as a blockade on humanitarian assistance supplies …has no justification.” added Abdollahian
He further added that the promotion of terrorism and Muslims’ diminishing power are the fallout from Saudi Arabia’s “strategic mistake” of invading Yemen, which will simply strengthen the Israeli regime in the region.
The Iranian official further advised the Al Saud regime to take a lesson from the fate of the US military interference in the region and directly halt its military violence against Yemen.
He said that enemies of Islam are seeking to turn Saudi Arabia into a new Libya by engaging Riyadh in a war against Yemen in order to undermine Muslim countries.
Those contributing to the military attack on Yemen will be held responsible for regional insecurity, said the Iranian diplomat.
