Zarif, ICRC Chief Discuss Regional Crises

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, exchanged views about a range of issues, including the ongoing humanitarian crises in the Middle East.
In the meeting in Tehran on Sunday, Maurer voiced the ICRC’s determination to continue consultations and cooperation with Iran to help end human crises in some regional countries, including Yemen, Syria and Iraq, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Zarif said Iran will try its hardest to help relieve the sufferings of the war-affected people in Syria and Yemen and send humanitarian assistance to them.
The two sides also stressed the need to establish an immediate ceasefire in Yemen and dispatch medical and food aid to the people of the impoverished Arabian Peninsula country.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by a coalition led by the Saudi regime for almost three years.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the ousted president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
