Iranian Parliament: Saudi Arabia entered Yemen quagmire with Emirati recommendations


The head of the Iranian Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee, Abbas Kilro, said on Friday that “Saudi Arabia entered the Yemeni quagmire on Emirati recommendations.”

According to RT Arabic, Abbas Kilro said, “We did not expect a Saudi delegation to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi, but we have exchanged positive signals with the Saudi side.”

“Saudi Arabia has been stuck in Yemen for 6 years, and their situation is bad there. We look forward to a better future for relations between Tehran and Riyadh.”

He continued: “We must transcend the differences and challenges in the region, because it can not absorb more tensions.”

Iraqi President Barham Salih announced earlier, that “Baghdad hosted more than one round of dialogue between Saudi Arabia and Iran during the last period.”

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh had previously announced that “Tehran is ready to hold talks with Saudi Arabia at any level, and the countries of the region and our both countries will witness the result of these talks.”
