Qatar urges ending Yemeni war

Tehran, Qatari Foreign Ministry spokesman Lolwah AlKhater urged ending war in Yemen, saying Saudis' acts just make more serious humanitarian conditions in Yemen.

According to Arab media, AlKhater made the remarks addressing a conference in Washington.

Referring to the fact that Yemen had earlier been a member of coalition against Yemen, she said even one Qatari military force did not trespassed Yemeni territory.

She added that Qatar is now playing the role of sending humanitarian aids in coordination with the United Nations.

Referring to blockage in Qatar by some Arab countries, AlKhater said the siege had made Qatar independent as regard food security and foreign policy.

Earlier, the Amnesty International in a report urged the Western countries to stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE promptly.

The Saudi and UAEled Coalition continues to kill civilians unlawfully in Yemen. The US, UK and others continue to sell them weapons. Will you allow this to continue? Tell your country to stop arming the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Share this, Amnesty International tweeted on Monday.

Today is the 4th anniversary of the devastating conflict in #Yemen. After years of bloodshed in the Arab world's poorest country, Yemenis can no longer bear the catastrophic humanitarian impact of the war. This needs to stop now, it added.

Meanwhile, the Amnesty International quoted Samah Hadid International's Middle East Campaigns Director as saying After four years of bloodshed in the Arab world's poorest country, Yemenis can no longer bear the catastrophic humanitarian impact of the war.

Meanwhile earlier, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi in a statement issued on Monday strongly condemned aggression of coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia to Yemen and called for immediate termination of war and bloodshed in the country.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the SecretaryGeneral of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of UN and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of alHudaydah, alSalif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
