Iran Welcomes Muslim Figures’ Call for Cessation of War in Yemen

Bahram Qassemi

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has hailed a statement by a number of respectable political figures in Muslim countries to stop the ongoing war in Yemen for three months.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, from the beginning of this devastating war, called for an immediate end to the conflict and proposed a four-point solution to the crisis, Qassemi noted in a Tuesday statement.

He referred to the statement by a group of respectable figures of the Muslim world to stop the war in Yemen, and stressed that Iran would always support any plan or proposal that could help end this war through dialogue and political solution.

The spokesman also hailed these political figures for feeling responsible in this regard and expressed the country’s readiness for any assistance in implementing this proposal.

Qassemi also called on the international community, especially all Muslim governments, to increase their efforts to stop this devastating war.

He finally referred to the four-point plan proposed by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to end the Yemen crisis, and said, “As stated in the proposal, the immediate ceasefire, dispatch of humanitarian assistance, initiation of political dialogue between all Yemeni parties and formation of a national inclusive government, are key components of achieving lasting peace in Yemen.

The Saudi attack on Yemen was launched in March 2015 in support of Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly government and against the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Yemen has announced that the Saudi-led war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured during the past three years.

The United Nations says 22.2 million people are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe starvation.
