Iran Calls for Self-Restraint by Yemeni Parties

Iran Calls for Self-Restraint by Yemeni Parties
IRAN  - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi blasted Saudi Arabia's continued aggression against the Yemeni people, and called on all parties to the conflict to exercise restraint and seek dialogue to settle their domestic issues.

"All the domestic conflicts in Yemen can be settled through a framework for dialogue to prevent the enemies of Yemen to take advantage of the situation," Qassemi said on Sunday in reaction to the recent developments in Yemen.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman pointed to the "continuous brutal aggression of foreigners aiming at total destruction of infrastructures, all-out blockade, and mass and quiet murder of Yemeni nation, and said, "I hope for the convergence of all political parties and movements in Yemen to form a united front against foreigners' aggression."

Since March 2015, the Saudi regime has been heavily bombarding Yemen as part of a brutal campaign against its impoverished Southern neighbor in an attempt to reinstall Yemen's former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and crush the popular movement, which is in control of large parts of Yemen, including the capital. The Saudi campaign, however, has failed to achieve its goals.

Certain Arab countries, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain, are key partners to the campaign, which lacks any international mandate and has faced increasing criticism.

Saudi Arabia has also imposed a total embargo on Yemen, causing severe shortages of food and medicine. A recent cholera epidemic has been blamed on those shortages.
