FM's Aide: Iran Supports Peaceful Solution to Yemeni Crisis without Foreign Interference
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister's Assistant for Special Political Affairs Ali Asqar Khaji underlined that any political solution to resolve the Yemeni crisis should be based on Yemeni people’s will in absence of foreign interference.
Khaji made the remarks in a meeting with Yemeni Ambassador in Tehran Ibrahim Mohammad al-Dulaimi on Sunday.
During the meeting in the Iranian capital, the two sides discussed the latest developments on the ground and international arena.
The two also sides emphasized territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty of Yemen.
Khaji reiterated the need for solving the problems of Yemeni people and lifting the brutal sanctions imposed on the country, and said, "This would contribute to establishment of ceasefire and political solution in Yemen."
Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah resistance movement.
Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.
The Saudi war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. The war has also destroyed Yemen's infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the Arab country.
