Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi urged Secretary-General of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) Nayef Al-Hajraf to address Yemen's crisis rather than forging allegations against Iran.

Rasa - "Instead of making baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran, we advise the new secretary-general to focus on the necessity of halting the aggressors’ attacks on Yemeni women and children and resolving the crisis through Yemeni-Yemeni talks," Mousavi said.

"In spite of the request of Arab nations and regional Islamic countries, some of the PGCC members have kept silent via-a-vis the US’ and the Zionist regime’s threats as well as bombardment of Yemeni people and blockade of the country, which has stopped imports of fuel, foodstuff, and medicine for combating coronavirus," he noted.

Mousavi further said that the Saudis’ stance toward the former fugitive president Mansour Hadi's and the UN Secretary General's move to stop the war in Yemen proves Riyadh’s hypocritical nature.

In relevant remarks in late April, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi referred to the developments in Southern Yemen, and stressed his country’s support for the Arab state's integrity and unity.

“Based on its principled policy, the Islamic Republic of Iran supports a united Yemen and its territorial integrity,” Mousavi said on Wednesday, April 29.

He referred to a Yemeni separatist group’s claim of self-rule, and said, “Such measures do not help settlement of the current problems in Yemen and they will rather make the country’s situation more complicated.”

Mousavi underscored the necessity for ending the Saudi-led war against Yemen and removing the cruel siege on the Yemeni people, and said, “The only way to establish stability in Yemen is unity among the Yemeni groups and holding all-inclusive political talks among different groups to form all-inclusive unity government.”
