Iranian Parliament Speaker Special Aide for International Affairs Hussein Amir-Abdollahian indicated on Friday that Saudi must lift the blockade imposed on Yemen in order to verify its intentions to restore peace.
In a tweet, Abdollahian added that he had met with UN’s Yemen envoy, pointing out that, during the meeting, he told Martin Griffiths that Saudi cannot regain in the negotiations what it lost in the battlefield.
Abdollahian stressed, in his tweet, that Iran will never spare efforts to restore peace in Yemen.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of his aggression which is aimed at restoring power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Meanwhile, Yemen is home to the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with at least 7 million people on the brink of famine and hundreds of thousands suffering from cholera.
