They also discussed the humanitarian situation in Yemen and ways to deliver humanitarian aid to the people of Syria, Tasnim News Agency reported. Zarif later met with Vladimir Ivanovich Voronkov, the undersecretary-general of the newly-created United Nations Counter-Terrorism Office. The Iranian minister also held talks with participants attending a conference on Abrahamic religions, the director and members of the International Crisis Group–a New York-based non-governmental organization committed to preventing deadly conflicts-and members of the Strategic Studies Institute. Zarif has held dozens of other high-profile meetings on the sidelines of UNGA in recent days.
