'Despite all it says about peaceful solutions for Yemen crisis, London uses international laws to defend the invader,' said Bahram Qasemi, adding that the developments in the region are fast-paced.

Regarding the UK-suggested resolution that is to be put to votes in the UNSC, he said, 'We must wait till afternoon; then, we may be able to talk about that.'
