Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has denied Yemen’s accusations that the Islamic Republic is interfering in Yemeni internal affairs. He said that Iran is only supporting “the legitimate demands of the Muslim People of Yemen.”
Yemeni Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi had said on Thursday that Iran is seeking to expand its influence in the region by interfering in Yemen’s internal affairs [Yemen Fox / Press TV, 22 March].
“The Islamic Republic has always in its mind the good of the regional states as well as the collective and native security and stability of the region,” Amir-Abdollahian said.
Iran supports anti-government movements in Yemen and Bahrain while it supports the Syrian government against the anti-government movement in that country.
