Rasa - Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi renewed his country's support for the oppressed Yemeni nation in their ongoing resistance against the Saudi regime's non-stop attacks.

RNA - "We have done our best to support the crisis-hit nations of Yemen, Syria, Palestine and Lebanon," Boroujerdi said in a meeting with a senior member of Yemen's Supreme Council of Revolution in Tehran on Monday.


The prominent legislator underlined that the Yemeni nation will finally become victorious against the Saudi regime.


In early December, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi underlined that Tehran supports cessation of hostilities and continued talks among Yemeni groups, and expressed regret that Yemen has become a victim of Saudi Arabia's ill wishes and aspirations.


"Iran's position is clearly based on stopping violence and continued consultations and meetings among Yemeni and we welcome such talks and we hope that they can sit to the negotiations table without foreign interference and exchange views over their problems and finally reach a comprehensive understanding to take Yemen out of the status quo," Qassemi told reporters in Tehran.


He said more than one and a half years after the start of the Saudi-led war, "Yemen has unfortunately been victimized by Saudi Arabia's ill wishes and today, the House of Saud has stretched and complicated the situation so much and statistical figures show that the material and spiritual losses of the war are very huge."


Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 12,800 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.


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


According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster.
