Amir-Abdollahian stresses need to lift siege on Yemen, hails resistance
Yemeni Ambassador in Tehran hails Iran's stance regarding the war on Yemen and briefs Iranian FM on the temporary ceasefire.
Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian praised the resistance of the Yemeni people against the Saudi-led coalition's aggression, Tasnim news agency reported.
In a meeting with the Yemeni Ambassador to Tehran, Ibrahim Mohammad Al-Dailami, Amir-Abdollahian expressed his concern about the critical conditions in Yemen, and stressed the need to lift the siege imposed on the country, ensure a permanent ceasefire, and pave the way for Yemeni-Yemeni negotiations.
“With their morale of resistance and wisdom, the people of Yemen would decide their own fate,” he affirmed.
For his part, the Yemeni Ambassador hailed Iran's government and people for their stances regarding the war on Yemen.
Al-Dailami also briefed Amir-Abdollahian on the temporary ceasefire and the latest developments in Yemen.
It is noteworthy that former President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi announced last week that he has formed a new council to lead the country, according to state media.
"I irreversibly delegate to this presidential leadership council my full powers," Hadi said in a televised statement.
A UN-brokered truce that began on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, has provided a glimmer of hope for Yemen, which is regarded as the world's worst humanitarian crisis. However, observers have reported several Saudi-led coalition violations in several Yemeni governorates.
