Iran calls for permanent truce in Yemen – Politics News

In a meeting on Tuesday with Yemeni Ambassador to Tehran Ibrahim Mohamed al-Dailami, Amirabdollahian hailed the resistance of the Yemeni people against military attacks by the Saudi-led coalition.

Expressing his concern over the critical conditions in Yemen, the head of Iranian diplomacy stressed the need to completely lift the siege of the Arab country, ensure a permanent ceasefire and pave the way for Yemeni negotiations in order to to allow the people of the country to decide their own fate. .

“With their morale of resistance and wisdom, the Yemeni people would decide their own destiny,” he said.

For his part, the ambassador commended the Iranian government and people for their positions in favor of Yemen.

Dailami also briefed the Iranian Foreign Minister on the temporary ceasefire process and the latest developments in his country.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies – including the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – launched a brutal war against Yemen in March 2015. The war was aimed at eliminating the grassroots Houthi Ansarullah movement from Yemen and reinstalling a old regime.

Last week, Yemen’s fugitive President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi handed over his powers to a new presidential council, in a major political upheaval that came as efforts to end the country’s years-long war were gaining ground with a two-month truce.

The long-running conflict has created what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

Yemen is now in the first week of the UN-brokered two-month truce. This is the first national interruption of hostilities since 2016.
