Yemeni President Abd Rabuh Mansur Hadi in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Sana’a Hassan Niknam underscored Tehran’s major and important role in settling different problems in the region.
“Iran is a great country in the region,” President Mansur Hadi said during the meeting in the Yemeni capital on Saturday.
He underlined that Yemen and Iran can increase their mutual cooperation in a bid to resolve the regional problems.
The Yemeni president reiterated that Iran can play important roles using its broad capacities and capabilities.
The Yemeni president, meantime, called on the Iranian companies to invest in Yemen’s development projects.
In similar remarks last week, Vice-Chairman of Britain-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group Richard Bacon underscored Tehran’s capability to establish stability in the region, and called on the West to use Tehran’s power and capacity.
Bacon made the remarks in a meeting with Chairman of Iran-Europe Parliamentary Friendship Group Kazzem Jalali in Tehran.
He hailed the prevailing security in Iran, and said that travelling to Tehran and Iran in full security can rarely be experienced in (other parts of) the Middle East and Iran can play a vital role in regional stability if Western countries attach more significance to Iran’s role.
