Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN — Ira­nian For­eign Min­istry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sun­day that the Ye­meni groups should hold di­a­logue and pre­vent for­eign in­ter­fer­ence.

He ex­pressed hope that all the Ye­meni so­cial and po­lit­i­cal groups and move­ments would pro­mote sol­i­dar­ity and stand against for­eign ag­gres­sion.

He called on the Ye­me­nis to prac­tice self-re­straint.

“All in­ter­nal dif­fer­ences should be set­tled within the frame­work of talks and for­eign en­e­mies of the Ye­meni peo­ple should be pre­vented from in­ter­fer­ing,” he noted.

The re­marks by the Ira­nian For­eign Min­istry of­fi­cial came hours be­fore Ye­men’s ex-pres­i­dent Ali Ab­dul­lah Saleh was killed by Houthi rebels near the cap­i­tal, Sanaa.
