Iran decries Saudi obstacle to delivery of emergency supplies

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian

An Iranian deputy foreign minister has said that the Saudi government is expected to help promote peace and security in the region, but they have put regional security at risk.

Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Sunday expressed outrage at the obstacles created by the Saudi government to the delivery of emergency supplies to Yemen.

He said that Iran reviews all options for assisting people in Yemen such as the immediate shipment of relief supplies and transfer of injured civilians.

The Saudi government does not have the right to dictate its policies on others in the region, he said, adding that their military intervention in Bahrain left hundreds of casualties.

He said that the Saudi government is not honoring its obligations under the international law and the Charter of the United Nations which prohibits intervention in the internal affairs of other states.

The Saudi aggression on Yemen has led to the escalation of violence and bloodshed in the country and the entire region, he said, adding that the Saudi government is expected to help promote peace and security in the region, but they have put regional security at risk.

Amir-Abdollahian said that the Saudi government is responsible to play a constructive role and not to disrupt peace and security in the region.

He underlined that Tehran always backs diplomatic talks with the Saudi government.
