The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the Saudi coalition’s aggression against Yemen and called for an end to the conflict and killings in that country as soon as possible.
According to the Iranian news agency Fars News, on the occasion of the 4th anniversary of the Saudi Arabian-led coalition’s aggression against Yemen, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Monday, March 25, 2019, stating:
“The absurd aggression and war against Yemen is entering its fifth year as, according to officials and international organizations, more than 24,000,000 Yemenis are now in urgent need of help, more than 15,000,000 Yemenis suffer from malnutrition and millions of Yemeni children are exposed to famine and drought. And, none of this was caused by a natural disaster. All this is the result of the war, a war that lasted four years, under the silence and indifference of the international community.
In its usual political approach, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has developed a four-point plan for resolving this crisis and the Islamic Republic of Iran is now expressing its support for any ceasefire initiative throughout Yemen.
The Islamic Republic of Iran also calls for the lifting of the humanitarian and economic blockade unjustly imposed on the Yemeni people and calls for a political agreement between all the groups in conflict, an agreement that meets the demands of the Yemeni people.
The Islamic Republic of Iran also calls on the international community to support its efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people, especially women and children.
Reiterating its support for the Stockholm Agreement, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on the “key” countries in the crisis in Yemen to prepare the ground for full implementation of the agreements reached and hopes that implementation of the Stockholm Agreement will be a first step towards a final settlement of the Yemeni crisis.
