The UN special envoy for Yemen visited Iran and met with senior Iranian officials as part of what his office described as “efforts to support a negotiated political solution to the conflict in Yemen”. Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told the UN envoy that “a political solution, rather than an imposed war, is the only way to resolve the Yemen crisis”, and expressed Iran’s readiness “to support any effective role played by the UN in settling the crisis considering the very difficult conditions caused by the war and economic siege”.
