Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov hopes that the events in Yemen and around it will not make the Iran’s nuclear program talks participants change their positions.
“Hopefully, the events in Yemen and around it will not make the talks’ participants change their positions,” he added.
The Russian envoy was speaking at Beau Rivage Hotel where delegations from Iran and the group of six mediators – Britain, France, China, Russia, the United States and Germany – are meeting for a round of talks as the next deadline looms. The nations have until March 31 to agree on a preliminary deal, to be followed by a comprehensive accord in summer.The situation in Yemen has been rapidly deteriorating since August 2014 when protests of the Shiite Houthi opposition swept the country, leading to the ouster of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
On Wednesday, Hadi asked the Arab League of Gulf countries for military help. The same day, a Saudi-led coalition launched a military operation in Yemen to help roll back Houthi insurgency.
