Iran and European powers have made good progress in talks to end the conflict in Yemen as Tehran is pushing for a solution to the humanitarian crisis there, according to officials on both sides.
The talks were launched in February as part of efforts to explore ways to end a US-backed Suadi-led coalition that has waged a war on the poor Arab nation since 2015.
