Tehran, Oct 26, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed regret over the hard situation resulted from imposed war and about five years blockade in Yemen and called for ending the killing of civilians and lifting the siege.

Speaking in a meeting with Spokesman for Yemeni Ansarallah Mohammed Abdul Salam, Zarif underlined the fact that political solution is the key to settle the Yemeni crisis.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and installing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN and the government representatives. It agreed to install truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif, and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
