Ties with Iran highly important: Yemeni official

Tehran, IRNA – Yemen’s Ansarollah Movement spokesman Muhammad Abdul-Salam said that the country’s relationship with Iran is of high importance and respected, praising Iran’s support of Yemeni people.

The talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia would decrease tensions, but what happens in Yemen is a domestic issue, he said in an interview on Sunday.

He said that the United States support al-Qaida and the ISIS in Marib, Yemen, but popular forces have reclaimed many areas in this region.
