Iran calls for a political solution to wars in Yemen, Syria

Iran's top diplomat is calling for a political solution to the conflicts in Yemen and Syria, saying that the continuation of violence will only lead to more bloodshed and no one will win the war.



Beirut: Iran's top diplomat is calling for a political solution to the conflicts in Yemen and Syria, saying that the continuation of violence will only lead to more bloodshed and no one will win the war.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says regional powers should help the Yemenis and the Syrians to reach an immediate cease-fire that would be followed by the start of a dialogue to end the catastrophes underway in both countries.

Zarif spoke today, the second day of his visit to Lebanon.

Iran is a strong backer of Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis and also Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Saudi Arabia Iran's main regional rival backs the Yemeni government fighting the Houthis and insurgents trying to remove Assad from power.
