Kingdom of Sweden’s special envoy for Yemen and Libya affairs Peter Semneby met on Sunday with Hossein Jaberi Ansari, a senior assistant to the Iranian foreign minister, to discuss ways to settle the crisis in Yemen and help its people.
During the meeting, which was held in Tehran, the two sides held talks on the latest developments in Yemen, which has been under attack by a Saudi-led military coalition since 2015.
Hossein Jaberi Ansari, a senior assistant to Iran’s foreign minister for political affairs, has discussed the ongoing crisis in Yemen with Swedish envoy for Yemen and Libya.
In their Sunday meeting in Tehran, Jaberi Ansari and Peter Semneby exchanged views on the latest developments in Yemen.
They also talked about Iran-Sweden cooperation in order to help put an end to the Yemen crisis and the human catastrophe in the country.
The Swedish ambassador to Tehran was also present at the meeting.
Yemen is in the grip of a humanitarian disaster with millions facing starvation and disease after years of war on the country waged by Saudi Arabia and its allies.
The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in March 2015 as an attempt to reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The war has created a dire humanitarian situation in the country.
