UN: Guterres, Amir-Abdollahian discussed region, Red Sea in phone call

New York, IRNA - The spokesperson for the United Nations has informed about Monday’s telephone conversation between UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres and Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on regional developments, including the Red Sea.

Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN chief told reporters on Tuesday local time in New York that Guterres while talking to the Iranian foreign minister once again asked all parties to refrain from escalating tensions and fully implement Security Council Resolution 2722.

“The UN Secretary General also demanded the immediate release of all captives in Gaza”, he said.

Antonio Guterres also touched on the recent developments in the Red Sea and expressed concern about the spread of conflicts in the region. He urged all parties to pay attention to the United Nations Charter and stay away from war.

According to IRNA, Amir-Abdollahian in his phone call with Guterres on Monday described the military actions of the United States and Britain against Yemen as “illegal” as well as “strategic mistake”.

The Iranian foreign minister clarified his country’s principled position on maintaining the security of shipping and seafaring but underlined that the Yemeni army’s actions against Israeli-bound ships are aimed at stopping the regime’s crimes and genocide in Gaza.

The top Iranian diplomat and the UN chief also exchanged views on the need to stop the Israeli regime's crimes in Gaza and the recent developments in the Red Sea.

While appreciating the efforts and stance of Guterres, especially his call to stop the killing of citizens in Gaza, Amir-Abdullahian emphasized the need to end the Israeli onslaught on Gaza and announced Iran’s readiness to send humanitarian aid to the besieged Palestinian people.

During this telephone conversation, the UN Secretary-General once again condemned the war on Gaza and emphasized the need to stop the mayhem and allow humanitarian aid into the blockaded Palestinian strip.
