Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani says the strong resistance of the "oppressed" people of Yemen could shape the future of the region.

Shamkhani made the remark in a meeting with a delegation from Yemen's Supreme Revolutionary Committee in Tehran on Tuesday, IRNA reported.

"Targeting residential areas, hospitals and service providers, killing innocent women and children and imposing an inhumane blockade against Yemenis are obvious examples of war crimes, which demand protests by caring people and response by international organizations," Shamkhani said, referring to the Saudi-led military campaign against the impoverished Arab country.  

The SNSC secretary also criticized the media affiliated with the "hegemonic system" which have violated professional, moral and human principles by ignoring unprecedented crimes committed by Saudi Arabia against the Yemeni people.

The use of unconventional weapons by the Saudis against civilians is aimed at breaking the legitimate resistance of the Yemeni nation, he stressed.  

Underscoring the need to focus efforts to find a political solution to the conflict, Shamkhani said, "Dialogue between Yemeni groups without foreign interference is the only way to promote understanding and restore peace and stability to Yemen."

Naef Khaef, head of the Yemeni delegation, appreciated Iran's continued support for Yemenis, denouncing international bodies' silence about Saudi crimes in Yemen.

Pointing to the desire of the leaders of the Yemeni revolution to put an end to the crisis through engaging in dialogue, he asked the countries which want to help Yemen to reject bloodshed and back political solutions.

"Until there is even one Yemeni able to take up arms, resistance against invasion will continue," Khaef stressed.
