Zarif separately said he is prepared to visit Saudi Arabia in order to mend ties between the two neighboring countries.
Speaking to Yemen’s Al-Masirah TV, Zarif said, "Once appropriate conditions are prepared, I’m ready to visit Riyadh to settle the differences.”
He said Iran has regular contacts with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, who recently visited Iran as a mediator, on the issue of Yemen. "Tehran welcomes any initiative to ease tensions in the region, and will cooperate to end the Yemen war.”
Zarif, however, said the Islamic Republic will always stand by the Yemeni nation, and believes the cessation of war will first help the Yemeni civilians.
In a meeting with Imran Khan in Tehran on October 13, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Iran has no reason for hostility against Saudi Arabia, but regretted that such countries are acting against Iran under the will of the United States.
