RNA - In the Sunday meeting between Jaberi Ansari and Peter Maurer in Tehran at Foreign Ministry headquarters, the two sides conferred on the latest developments in Syria and Yemen.
The two officials discussed the latest status of Syria, Astana peace talks, the humanitarian situation in Idlib, and the return of Syrian refugees to their homeland.
They also conferred on the developments in Yemen, and the latest efforts to solve the crisis and facilitate the process of providing humanitarian aid to Yemeni people.
Providing humanitarian aid to the war-stricken people in Yemen and Syria has always been among the priorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran during recent years and the country has used all available capacities in this regard.
According to Fars News Agancy, 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 17,500 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, as Saudi Arabia's deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fuelled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods.
A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.
