Iran says the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen is serving the interests of al-Qaeda, ISIL and the Takfiri groups.

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also warned regional and western countries not to be part of such un-thoughtful games. Zarif said Iran has been calling for talks between opposing sides in Yemen since the beginning of the conflict. He said this is the only way to resolve issues in the country. Zarif made the comments on the sidelines of nuclear talks in the Swiss city of Lausanne. Earlier, Iran’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham condemned the Saudi-led attacks on Yemen, saying such assaults would expand terrorism and insecurity in the region. Meanwhile, Russia has expressed its deep concern over the situation in Yemen, but said it has no plans to evacuate its citizens from the Arab country.
