Iran’s Rouhani: Yemen’s Aggressors Will Regret Their Actions
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that Yemenis would make those attacking their country regret their actions as a Saudi-led coalition pounded the capital with heavy air strikes.
“The people of Yemen will make their aggressors regret their actions,” Rouhani said in a televised speech during the 31 International Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran.
His comments came a day after Yemeni interior ministry announced the killing of Ali Abdullah Saleh, noting that the conspiracy by the former president against Sanaa was thwarted.
Rouhani also condemned signs that some Muslim countries were improving ties with the Zionist entity in order to counter Iran’s growing influence.
“Some Islamic countries have shamelessly revealed their closeness to the Zionist regime,” Rouhani said.
“If some of these countries in the previous years were engaged in negotiations, interaction and cooperation in secret with the enemies of Islam in the region, at least they would deny it in public. Such relations were considered ugly, detestable, sinister and indecent.”
“I have no doubt that the Muslims of the world will not let this sinister plot bear fruit,” Rouhani added.
