Yemen: Iran urges Yemen to avoid tension, bloodshed

IRNA - Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast on Wednesday voiced regret over escalation of tension in Yemen, calling on Yemeni government to avoid bloodshed and tension.

Mehmanparast said conditions in Yemen have been getting worse over the past few days, making the problems in that country more complicated.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that people's contribution is the key to current problems in Yemen,” Mehmanparast said.

Deploring the events taking place in Yemen simultaneous with the anniversary of unification of two Yemens, Mehmanparast said, “Nearly two decades have passed since the two Yemens were unified and this should be prolonged by respecting demands of people all over the country.”
