Claimers cannot support rights of Yemeni people

Tehran, Oct 17, IRNA- The chairman of the Executive Council of Iran in Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), told the Yemeni representative “Do you not hear the bellowing of innocent people in Yemen?” Those who themselves lack the legitimacy to represent the Yemeni people, cannot claim to support the rights of the Yemeni people.

Syyedeh Fatemeh Hosseini said on Wednesday at the IPU General Assembly meeting in response to claims by the Yemeni MP who accused Iran of killing Yemeni children, “I am calling on the awakening nations of the world and the representatives of the libertarians to ask you which country has had a military strike against Yemen? Who kills children, mothers, and elders of that ancient land?

She continued, “I ask you who has violated Yemen's territorial integrity? Do not you hear the bellowing of the innocent people in Yemen?'

The chairman of the Executive Council of Iran in Inter-Parliamentary Union told the Yemeni representative at the meeting that the Yemeni representative would not address the wrong address! Iran has always laid the foundations for peace and friendship towards its neighbors. Iran considers such statements to be contrary to the interests and collective security of the region.

Hosseini added, “Today, how do those who lack legitimacy to represent the Yemeni people claim to support the rights of the Yemeni people? How do the parliamentary assembly was held 15 years ago has legitimacy?
