Description

As the deadly Saudi war on Yemen continues relentlessly, the U-N special envoy warns that the humanitarian situation in the impoverished country is catastrophic. Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed, who is visiting Iran, says the U-N is trying to facilitate the delivery of more humanitarian supplies to war-torn Yemen. He said a summit will be held in Geneva on May 28 to discuss the situation there. The U-N envoy called for a political solution in Yemen. He insisted that all political groups participate in national dialog and no group be isolated. Sheikh Ahmad made the comments following a meeting with Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran. Zarif called for a ceasefire as the starting point of any peaceful solution to the crisis in Yemen. He slammed the ongoing Saudi airstrikes and blockade of Yemen as unacceptable.
