UN Hails Iran Support for Yemen Peace Efforts

Iran’s support to help de-escalate the crisis in Yemen remains strong as well as their commitment to a political solution, UN spokesperson, Farhan Haq, said during a press briefing on Monday. “Special envoy to Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed wrapped up a visit to Tehran yesterday,” Haq told reporters, Sputnik reported. “He said that Iran’s support to UN’s efforts remains strong, adding that there is a common understanding that only a political solution can bring an end to the war.” Haq noted that in his meetings with Iranian authorities, Ahmed discussed at length the urgent need to prevent the worsening of humanitarian crisis. Yemen has been in the grip of a civil war since 2015, which has affected the country’s infrastructure, economic and social systems, as well as national healthcare.  The war is waged between the loyalists of fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement backed by army units loyal to former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh.  In March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf Arab countries launched airstrikes against the Houthis to reinstate Hadi.
