The Foreign Ministry voiced the country’s support for the United Nations-sponsored peace talks between Yemen’s warring parties. 
“Iran takes this opportunity to express its readiness to cooperate with the global community in tackling the Yemeni crisis,” the ministry said in a statement on Monday, stressing the importance of accelerating the supply of humanitarian aid to the impoverished Arab country.

The UN diplomatic initiative to address the crisis is expected to be undertaken this week in Stockholm, Sweden.
