Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ismail Baqai Hamana, called for “redoubling efforts to help end the clashes and preserve national unity and the right to sovereignty and political independence for Yemen.”
In a speech during the meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Baqai Hamana said: “Those who are beating the drums of war should stop selling weapons used only to kill the innocent Yemeni people.”
He added, “Monitoring the humanitarian situation in Yemen needs a correct assessment of the field causes and the political will to address them. The illegal use of force against the Yemeni people is a clear violation of the Charter of the United Nations and a violation of the principle of the right to self-determination.”
He referred to “the financial support provided by some countries for the continuation of the Yemen crisis,” saying: “This issue should not become a cover used by those who created this humanitarian catastrophe, and that ending the blockade and facilitating humanitarian aid access to parts of the country as well as stopping military interventions must be done. Get priority. “
“The Islamic Republic of Iran continues its efforts with ample desire, by consulting with the special envoy of the United Nations and all other parties to reach a solution to this bloody conflict in Yemen,” Baqai Hamana continued.
