Iran Urges Saudi Arabia to End Yemen War, Engage in Dialogue

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi shrugged off Saudi Arabia's threats against the Islamic Republic, saying that the Riyadh regime is not powerful enough to "live out its dreams" (against Iran).

Iran has said it supports the Houthis' cause in Yemen but has repeatedly denied arming them, despite claims by the USA and Saudi Arabia of evidence of weapon shipments, AFP reported.

He made the remarks in response to a letter submitted by his Saudi counterpart, Abdullah al-Muallami, to the Security Council demanding that Iran be held accountable for allegedly supplying Yemen's Houthi fighters with ballistic missiles.

But on the streets of Tehran, long queues continued to gather outside foreign exchanges in the run-up to this month's Nevruz New Year holiday."The issue is psychological rather than economic".

In the "unequal war" on Yemen, Saudis and their allies have been only faced with the Yemeni people's resistance and experienced a "disgraceful defeat", Qassemi said, emphasizing that Saudi Arabia was in "no position and condition" to realize its "illusions and fantasies".

The top general said the Yemeni nation has come under military aggression, and hence, it is resisting the aggressors.

The Saudi official also threatened retaliation against Tehran, accusing it of being behind the recent missile attacks on the Kingdom. The Saudi air force intercepted some of the missiles over the northeastern part of the capital Riyadh late on Sunday night, Saudi state television said.

"Countries of the region and the global community" should "redouble their efforts to support of this goal", the statement said, calling on parties to the conflict to allow unhindered commercial and humanitarian access to all of Yemen, and for the government of Yemen to pay public sector salaries across the country.

Britain is the third largest humanitarian donor to Yemen. Much of the Arabian Peninsula country's infrastructure, including hospitals, schools and factories, has been reduced to rubble due to the war.
