FM Zarif: No military solution for Yemeni crisis

Tehran, Dec 13, IRNA – The Yemeni crisis has no military solution, Iranian Foreign Minister said in a message.

“Ending the nightmare that is the war in Yemen is our collective responsibility. We welcome the growing recognition that there is no military solution, and we are ready to contribute to any effort towards an immediate ceasefire, humanitarian assistance and intra-Yemeni dialogue,' Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a Twitter message released on Wednesday.

Since 2015, the Yemeni people have been under attacks of Saudi Arabia and its allies which have resulted in an unprecedented human catastrophe in the Arab country; the international bodies have frequently warned about the consequences of the brutal attacks and blockade in Yemen.

The United Nations Secretary General António Guterres had earlier announced that 'there is no military solution to the Yemen conflict. He urges all parties to the conflict to engage meaningfully with the United Nations to revitalize inclusive negotiations on a political settlement.”
