Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham says the crisis in Yemen cannot be settled militarily.

Speaking at her weekly press conference in Tehran on Wednesday, Afkham stressed that the conflict in the Arab country must be resolved through talks.

Yemen has been targeted by Saudi airstrikes since March 26 in a campaign aimed at restoring power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against the impoverished Arab country, which is being carried out without a United Nations mandate, has claimed the lives of almost 2,600 people so far.
