Iran, Pakistan stress peaceful resolution of Yemen crisis

Tehran, April 5, IRNA – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Speaker of Pakistan National Parliament Ayaz Sadiq stressed peaceful resolution of Yemen crisis.

During a phone contact with his Pakistani counterpart on Saturday night, Larijani said Iran believes that the Yemen crisis should be resolved through national dialogue among all Yemeni political factions.

He praised Pakistan stance towards Iran and the Muslim World, noting that Iran will use the nuclear agreement as a tool to boost regional stability and Muslim Unity.

Destruction of Yemen infrastructure is in the interest of Zionist regime and they should take a lesson from Soviet Union and NATO aggression against Afghanistan, Larijani underlined.

He said Yemen crisis should be resolved through dialogue and military interference will only complicate the situation.

Speaker of Pakistan National Parliament, for his part, welcomed nuclear agreement between Iran and G5+1.

He voiced hope for removal of all sanctions against Iran.

The official said that Islamabad has no intention to interfere in Yemen crisis and believes that peace in Yemen is the interest of the whole Muslim world.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for ten days now to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The ten days of the Saudi-led aggression has killed at least 860 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Five Persian Gulf States — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait — and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on March 26.

US President Barack Obama authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to the military operations, National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said late on March 25.
