The Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, stressed that the Islamic Republic supports the Yemeni people and resistance, adding that addressing the crisis requires halting the aggression and blockade.
Zarif pointed out that Iran backs all the efforts aimed at ending the war on Yemen, ighlighting the ongoing Iranian support to the oppressed people.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, which is supported by US, UK, and Israel, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis have been killed or injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
