Yemen war will end up harming Riyadh, Iran minister says

KUWAIT – Iran’s foreign minister urged rival Saudi Arabia to end its military campaign in Yemen, saying the war would “bring harm” to the kingdom, Iran’s official IRNA news agency reported on Wednesday.

Mohammad Javad Zarif’s remarks from Kuwait, where he was attending a meeting of the Islamic Organisation Conference (IOC), was one of Tehran’s most direct attempts yet to engage Gulf Arab countries on the crisis in Yemen. “We say to our Saudi brothers that we want a brighter future for all countries in the region, and what they are doing in Yemen will end up harming them,” Zarif was quoted as saying.
