Iran FM, UN envoy urge end to humanitarian crisis in Yemen

The UN envoy arrived in Tehran on Saturday morning, and is also going to hold a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The Iranian foreign minister and United Nations envoy for Yemen on Saturday urged comprehensive political solution to end the humanitarian crisis in the war-torn Yemen, Press TV reported.

Earlier in the day, Cheikh Ahmed held talks with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari.

During the meeting, the Iranian diplomat said the Islamic Republic supports all efforts by the United Nations aimed at putting an end to the war in crisis-hit Yemen.

The UN envoy urged the Islamic republic to support the UN efforts aiming to find a political solution to the Yemeni crisis.

The Iranian diplomat, for his part, expressed concern over the serious humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and voiced Tehran's support for the UN's efforts to end the war and crisis in the Arab country.

The two sides also exchanged views on new ideas for opening up the current political deadlock in talks for Yemen's situation. The war, however, has failed to achieve either of the goals, morphing into a protracted conflict and causing a humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

Iran has repeatedly called for a swift end to the brutal Saudi-led military campaign.
