TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Diplomats from Iran and Sweden discussed ways to settle the crisis in Yemen and help its people.

In a meeting in Tehran on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister's Special Assistant for Political Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari and Sweden’s special envoy for Libya and Yemen Peter Semneby held talks on the latest developments in Yemen, which has been under attack by a Saudi-led military coalition since 2015.

They also explored avenues for Iran-Sweden cooperation to resolve the crisis in Yemen and put an immediate end to an ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in the war-stricken country.

Yemen is in the grip of a humanitarian disaster with millions facing starvation and disease after years of war on the country.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in March 2015 as an attempt to crush the Houthi Ansarollah movement in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The conflict has created a dire humanitarian situation in the country.
