MUSCAT (ONA) – Iran’s foreign minister met Houthi militia representatives in Oman on Wednesday, to express Tehran’s support for a cease-fire and a return to talks to end the country’s long conflict.

At the talks with Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdul Salam, Mohammad Javad Zarif “once again stressed our country’s view regarding the political solution being the only solution to the crisis of Yemen”, the Iranian foreign ministry said in a statement. The foreign minister “emphasised our country’s support for a cease-fire and Yemeni-Yemeni talks”.

Several meetings have taken place in past years between Iran’s chief diplomat and the Houthi spokesman in the Omani capital.

Zarif’s comments came a day after Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman called on the Houthis to stop fighting and enter peace negotiations.

The war in Yemen, in which tens of thousands of people have been killed since the conflict erupted in 2014, has flared anew in the past two months with a Houthi campaign to seize Marib.

Saudi Arabia has proposed a “comprehensive” cease-fire and a return to the negotiating table, a proposal that the Houthis immediately rejected.

  • The price of having the US rejoin the nuclear deal may be to disengage from Yemen and Syria. Russia will not allow Iran to do so. Zarif is doing his best, but he does not have the leverage to change the balance of power.

  • In less than 2 months there will be elections in Iran and a new government will take over. I think this new government will be more pro-Russian and anti-American. Zarif who is obviously pro-Western since he has American citizenship, is trying to push his agenda to the maximum before he loses his office.

  • The problem is not to be pro west or pro east, the problem is to be antji imperailist. Zarif and Roohani work for the american imperialism. people who are against imperialism have no other choice to have the help of Russia and China because these two country are the only power which can resist against american army.A

  • Oman doesn’t participate in the Saudi-led coalition at the Yemeni Civil War. It has chosen a moderate approach in political agenda in comparing to Saudi Arabia. Oman has been acting as a mediator that keeping relationship with Iran when Iran has tensions with other Arab countries, and since then has become a bridge connecting relationship between two countries.

  • In the 1960s and 1970s, Iran provided military assistance to Oman during the Dhofar uprising. During the Iran-Iraq War (1980-88), Iran and Iraq negotiated in secret in Muscat a ceasefire agreement. Although the agreement was not signed, the talks led to a reduction in mistrust between the parties. After 1988, Oman mediated the restoration of diplomatic relations between Iran and Britain, and Iran and Saudi Arabia.

  • این امیر تخمی-توده ای که باز زرزر کرد.

    فرق اونی که برای آمریکا-انگلیس نوکری میکنه با توده ای اینه که اولی برای کاسبی نوکری میکنه ولی توده ای از روی عقده.

  • اگر رژیم کودتایی شاه خودش رو به آمریکا آویزان نکرده بود که انقلاب نمیشد. مردم برای مبارزه با امپریالیسم بلند شدند .
