Zarif condemns West for fueling Yemen war

TEHRAN, Jun. 05 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif slammed Western countries for providing arms to Saudi-led coalition in the devastating war on Yemen.

“Western publics & legislatures demand an end to humanitarian disaster that is the Saudi-Emirati war on Yemen. But their governments provide ever more weapons used to perpetrate war crimes,” Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.

“Time & again our offers of political way out have been rebuffed,” he noted, highlighting, “This evil cycle must stop.”

Saudi Arabia and a number of its allies — mainly the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — invaded Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing a former Yemeni client regime back to power. The ongoing war has killed tens of thousands and disrupted the lives of millions by causing widespread famine as well as epidemics.
