(MENAFN) On Monday, Iran called for international intervention to stop the Saudi Arabia-led war on the Yemeni port of Hodeidah.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told a news conference that the ongoing offensive on Hodeidah has put the country on the brink of famine, the state TV reported.
Iran is contacting the regional and European governments to find a way to send relief aid and other humanitarian assistance to Yemen, Qasemi said.
"The international community should understand the Yemeni people's difficult conditions. The international organizations and the UN should make an effort to end the aggression against the oppressed Yemeni people," he said.
