The Iranian foreign minister’s special assistant for political affairs held a meeting with senior European diplomats in Belgium for talks about the crisis that has engulfed Yemen.
Hossein Jaberi Ansari, who is also Iran’s top negotiator in international Syria peace talks, held the fourth round of talks with Secretary General of European External Action Service (EEAS) Helga Maria Schmid and with representatives of Italy, Germany, France and Britain, in Brussels on Monday.
The diplomats discussed the crisis in Yemen.
At the gathering, Jaberi Ansari also briefed the Europeans on the results of the 11th session of the Astana process for peace in Syria, and the ongoing efforts at the formation of Syria’s constitutional committee.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
