No Consultations With US on Region

The deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs said Tehran has not entered any negotiations with the United States over Middle East issues, adding that the Islamic Republic holds dialogue with its "neighboring countries and allies" on regional security and stability.
"Iran's talks with the world powers known as the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) are solely focused on the country's peaceful nuclear activities," Hossein Amir Abdollahian clarified on Thursday, IRNA reported.   
Turning to the efforts to defuse regional crises, the senior diplomat urged the contribution of all regional states, including Saudi Arabia, to help address challenges and called on them to play effective roles to help restore peace, stability and security to the region.
He said Saudi Arabia's military campaign against Yemen is "unhelpful" and only serves to intensify extremism and terrorism and fuels sectarian conflicts.
Saudi Arabia and some of its allies started airstrikes against Yemen on March 21. According to United Nation's reports, over 2,000 people have been killed and over 7,000 injured due to the conflict in the impoverished Arab country.
