Time Up for ‘Adventures’ in Yemen

Time Up for ‘Adventures’ in Yemen

The deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs denounced the ‘adventures’ of some states “who seek to play around with regional security,” and said the security of Yemen “is as important as that of the Middle East and Iran.”
The time is up for reckless measures that undermine the security of the region,” said Hossein Amir Abdollahian, urging regional governments to work for regional security and play a “constructive role” in promoting stability, Fars news agency reported at the weekend.   
Criticizing the “unacceptable” silence of some countries on the continuing Saudi-led airstrikes on the impoverished nation and imposition of blockade on Yemen, he noted, “Saudi Arabia’s war against Yemen only benefits the Zionist regime and terrorist groups.”
The senior official reiterated Tehran’s support to hold an intra-Yemeni dialogue at a venue agreed by all national groups, and rejected all foreign interference in the Arab country.
Saudi Arabia is continuing its brutal airstrikes on Yemen despite the deteriorating humanitarian situation and has also blocked aid. Last month, Riyadh prevented two Iranian civilian planes from delivering medical aid and foodstuff to the Yemeni people.
Riyadh launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 - without a United Nations mandate - in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.
