Senior Iranian adviser says Saudis should not host Yemen talks

The senior adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday that Saudi Arabia could not host talks between Yemen’s warring factions, as it was involved in the conflict in Yemen. Saudi Arabia and its Sunni Muslim allies have been conducting an offensive against Houthis rebels in Yemen for more than six weeks, saying the fighters are backed by Shi’ite Muslim power Iran, an allegation Tehran denies.
