Iran in favor of full ceasefire in Yemen: Raisi
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi underlines his country's support for the armistice in Yemen in light of the continuous Saudi violations of the treaty that came into effect in April.
Tehran fully supports the armistice between Sanaa and Riyadh, which will lead to peace in Yemen, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Saturday, praising the Yemeni people's resilience and resistance to the Saudi-led aggression.
Raisi called for the lifting of the siege on the Yemeni people during a phone conversation with Supreme Political Council leader Mahdi Al-Mashat, underlining that his country was prepared to send humanitarian aid and Covid-19 vaccines to Yemen.
Al-Mashat responded by thanking Iran for its support of the Yemeni people before the whole world and voicing Yemen's struggle in the international arena. He also called for enhancing cooperation with Tehran.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Special Political Affairs Ali Asghar Khaji underscored last month the importance of making efforts to lift the siege on the Yemeni people, ending the war, and starting an inter-Yemeni dialogue.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian hoped that the embargo imposed on Yemen ends as soon as possible to pave the way for inter-Yemeni dialogue.
