Saudi War on Yemen Doomed to Fail – Zarif


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Saudi war on Yemen is doomed to failure, and that the kingdom will not be able to impose its will on the Yemeni people through negotiations either.

“Saudi Arabia cannot either achieve military victory in Yemen or obtain what it has failed to do through military means via negotiations,” Zarif said on Sunday.

The Iranian diplomat reminded how the kingdom used to predict in the beginning of the warfare that it would come out victorious within just three weeks. Six years have passed without Riyadh realizing the result, Zarif added.

Riyadh will not be able to get its own way through talks either, the foreign minister said and invited the Gulf’s littoral states to rather meet and address the regional affairs together.

The Islamic Republic, he said, is after the establishment of calm and security in Yemen.
