Riyadh: Iran warned on Tuesday that the Saudi "attack" on Yemen endangered the whole region, calling for an immediate halt to the military operation against Shiite rebels.

"The fire of war in the region from any side... will drag the whole region to play with fire. This is not in the interest of the nations in the region," Iranian deputy foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said.

"Military operations must stop immediately" to open the way to a political solution, he told reporters on the sidelines of a Syria donors conference in Kuwait.
