Zarif: Iran ready to help stop military operations in Yemen

Tehran, April 18, IRNA – Iranian foreign minister said in a phone conversation with his Omani counterpart that Iran is ready to contribute to stop military operations in Yemen and initiate Yemeni-Yemeni peace talks.

Mohammad Javad Zarif made the remarks in phone conversation with Yusuf Bin Aliawi in the framework of the Islamic Republic of Iran's four-point peace plan.

The two countries' top diplomats meanwhile surveyed the latest regional developments, the latest status Iran's nuclear talks with six world powers, and the two friendly countries' bilateral relations.

Zarif and Bin Alawi both agreed on the need to send humanitarian emergency supplies for the war stricken Yemeni people, including food, tents and shelter, and medical supplies to various parts of Yemen.

Humanitarian situation has deteriorated in Yemen owing to Saudi air strikes and aggression on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia which is the only country with land borders with Yemen has blocked the path for air, land and sea access to that country not allowing the Muslim states to send relief supplies to Yemen.

United State Congress on Friday passed a bill for a $305 million package of urgent humanitarian aids to Yemen, which the Saudis will most probably not block.
