Iran, Sweden diplomats discuss ways to settle Yemen Crisis




In a meeting in Tehran on Sunday, talks were held between Iranian Foreign Minister’s Special Assistant for Political Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari and Sweden’s special envoy for Libya and Yemen Peter Semneby on the latest developments in Yemen, which has been under attack by a Saudi-led military coalition , backed by the US, since 2015.

They also explored avenues for Iran-Sweden cooperation to resolve the crisis in Yemen and put an immediate end to a constant humanitarian catastrophe in the war-stricken country.

In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.

Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
