US President Barack Obama told MSNBC that Tehran should be “part of the solution” to end the crisis in Yemen as Saudi Arabia halted airstrikes against Houthi fighters in the war-wracked country.  

“(The crisis will) not be solved by having another proxy war fought inside Yemen and we’ve indicated to the Iranians that they need to be part of the solution…,” Obama said on Tuesday night.

He expressed hope that eventually “we can settle down the situation in Yemen” and find what he referred to as “a political arrangement.”

In the interview Obama also expressed hope that the nuclear framework with Iran that the United States provisionally agreed to in March could be finalized to produce a “deal that the world community can verify and trust.”
