The Iranian foreign minister also expressed support for dialogue between the two sides in Yemen, calling it the only way to end that country’s crisis.

In Pakistan, Zarif repeated the same message of dialogue and talk as the only solution for Yemen, calling for an immediate ceasefire and an end to bombings. Zarif stressed that Yemen needs an “inclusive government”.

He stressed that Yemen’s problems are internal and its solution has to come from inside the country.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is bombing Yemen as the head of coalition, which includes Pakistan, fighting the Houthi forces that have seized control of most of the country.

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that Iran must be present in the talks about Yemen’s future.

Yesterday, Iran’s Supreme Leader met with the Turkish prime minister in Iran and called for an end to foreign intervention in Yemen, stressing that the people of Yemen should decide the country’s future.
