Saudi regime should pay Yemen compensation: Iranian MP
An Iranian lawmaker says Saudi Arabia should make reparations to neighboring Yemen for wreaking havoc on the country during its unauthorized aggression.
According to Press TV, Spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran’s Parliament Seyyed Hossein Naghavi Hosseini said on Thursday “International institutions should demand compensation from Saudi Arabia” for its “brutal” aggression against Yemen.
Saudi Arabia “brutally and hurriedly” launched military aggression against Yemen after noticing the emergence of “a democratic revolution” there.
Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to restore power to fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who is a close ally of Riyadh.
The Iranian lawmaker said the international community, that is the regional countries, international bodies and institutions, should urge a political solution to the crisis in Yemen, so that Saudi Arabia cannot “use military aggression as a means to achieve its ends.”
He stressed the international community should also step up efforts to reconstruct Yemen’s damaged infrastructure.
