The Iranian diplomat’s remarks came hours after the Saudi-led coalition declared an end Tuesday to its aggression on Yemen, nearly a month after launching air strikes against the civilians in the impoverished Arab country.
Saudi Arabia has “ended Operation Decisive Storm based on a request by the Yemeni government” and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, said Saudi government spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri on a televised broadcast.
According to reports, about 2,800 people have been killed during the aggression, and thousands more were injured.
