FM Zarif meets with UN envoy on Yemen

Tehran, June 8, IRNA - Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met and held talks with the United Nations Special Envoy on Yemen Martin Griffiths on Tuesday.

Earlier in Tehran, the UN envoy held talks with Iran's Senior Assistant to Foreign Minister for Special Political Affairs Ali-Asghar Khaji on various dimensions of the Yemen crisis and ways to achieve peace there to halt the desperate humanitarian crisis.

Referring to the regrettable and difficult situation imposed on Yemenis through war and economic blockade, Khaji called on the UN and the global community to intervene more in the issue to stop the bloodshed in Yemen and lift the siege.

Further, he expressed Iran’s readiness to dispatch humanitarian and medical aids to Yemen to help the country fight against the coronavirus.

The Saudi-led coalition has unleashed indiscriminate air raids on civilian targets in Yemen since March 26, 2015, which amounted to Crimes Against Humanity to give power back to the resigned Yemeni president and prevent the Yemeni revolutionary forces from taking power.
