Explaining Iran’s stance on Yemen

Explaining Iran’s 
stance on Yemen

Attention of the Iranian embassy in Dhaka has been drawn to an article published on 25 June, 2018 in The Independent titled “Tehran and its proxies ignore welfare of Yemenis”. As the article engaged Iran in the issue, this is the reply of the embassy. Iran's policy on the crisis in Yemen was clear since the very first day and it is based on Yemeni-Yemeni negotiations, opposition to any foreign military intervention and at the same time dispatching humanitarian aids to the desolate and helpless people of Yemen.

Iran hopes international community would understand the Yemeni people's hardships and Iran hopes international community would understand the Yemeni people's hardships and while persuades the parties engaged in the war to stop fighting, sends more humanitarian aids, especially medicine to the country. As an undeniable fact, the Saudi airstrike against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster and the ordinary people who face severe shortage of medicine and medical services have no option to go to neighbouring countries for treatment

A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by Saudi military attacks during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.

The world is witnessing war crimes in Yemen but taking no action against it. Using cluster bombs is one of them. Based on the reports of Human Rights Watch, Saudi Arabia has used and is using cluster bombs against Yemeni people. The international organization published evidences of using cluster bombs in Saada Govemorate, the northern province of Yemen, and has asked Riyadh to stop bombarding people with this type of ammunition, as it is an act against humanity.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is of the view that ending the nightmare of war in Yemen is our collective responsibility and that there is no military solution to this problem. The Iranian officials have repeatedly announced their readiness to contribute to any effort towards an immediate ceasefire, humanitarian assistance and intra-Yemeni dialogue. Iran considers the dire humanitarian conditions in Yemen as highly regretting and believes that this war results in nothing but instability and insecurity of the region and massacre of people and destruction of infrastructures and at the same time it creates opportunity for terrorist groups in the region. Over 20 million people are now on verge of famine and hunger and this issue has been misused by some countries of the Persian Gulf region to pressure the Yemeni people. It is highly recommended that the world community, especially the US and some European countries stop supplying the aggressors with different types of military armaments and adopt serious measures to stop war and prevent war crimes in Yemen.
