Several foreign officials attending a conference on regional security in Tehran held meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif for talks on regional and international issues.

Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, one of the participants in the Monday conference, met his Iranian counterpart in the evening, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The talks revolved around the critical conditions in Yemen, the need to end the war and aggression against Yemenis and the ways to deliver humanitarian relief aid to the impoverished nation buckling under a Saudi-led military campaign and blockade.

Zarif and bin Alawi also discussed the issues of mutual interest between Tehran and Muscat, and explored avenues for enhancement of banking ties. In a separate meeting, Zarif had talks with Massimo D’Alema, Italy’s former prime minister and minister of foreign affairs. Stressing the need to protect the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the visiting Italian figure urged efforts to boost economic relations between Iran and the EU. Zarif reiterates the need for the European Union’s practical steps to save the deal in addition to verbal supportive statements.
