Tehran has welcomed a peace agreement signed between the Yemeni government and the revolutionaries saying that Iran has always lent support to unity, stability and calm in Yemen.
Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham praised the [UN-brokered] peace deal between the Yemeni rivals, saying this has come around thanks to the vigilance and restraint practiced by the Yemeni people, political parties and social groups during the recent protests in the Arab country, IRNA reported on Monday.
She went on to say that participation of all political and social parties as well as the elite in the country’s political process could contribute to the full implementation of the agreement and help security and stability make a comeback to the violence-wracked country.
The [bloody] protests over the last few days and the takeover of government buildings by protesters forced the Yemeni government to answer people’s calls to resign and initiate economic reforms.
This came after United Nations envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar, on Saturday announced a political agreement between the government and the [Huthi] militants, but his announcement did little to calm the tensions gripping the Arab country.
On Sunday, the revolutionary forces took over government buildings in the capital, including some military facilities.
