Iran FM: US military approach destructive to politically resolve regional crises

Tehran, IRNA - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has said that the US government's military approach, especially its joint airstrikes with Britian against Yemen, has complicated the situation and made reaching a political solution more difficult.

Amirabdollahian met and held talks with the United Nations special envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg in the Iranian capital city of Tehran on Saturday.

The two sides discussed the latest developments in the region, including the situation in Yemen where the US and the UK have been conducting airstrikes over the past three weeks for what they describe as protecting international shipping amid Yemeni attacks targeting Israeli-linked ships as part of measures to put pressure on the regime to end its war on Gaza.

Amirabdollahian underlined that the US government's military approach, especially its joint airstrikes with Britain against Yemen, and re-designating the Ansarullah Movement as a terror group have complicated the situation and made it more difficult to reach a political solution.

While condemning the recent US aggression against targets in Syria and Iraq, the top Iranian diplomat described such strikes as the continuation of Washington’s wrong and failed approach to resolve issues by force and through militarism.

Referring to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s continued support for establishing lasting peace and security in Yemen, Amirabdollahian emphasized that efforts to promote stability and security throughout the region will benefit all regional countries.

Grundberg, for his part, thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran for its efforts to secure stability and security in the region, especially in Yemen.

He also briefed Amirabdollahian on the latest UN measures aimed at establishing peace and tranquility in Yemen.

He underscored the necessity of resolving existing regional crises by using intra-regional capacities.
