UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Iranian Foreign Minister on Friday questioned the US coalition project for a “peaceful resolution” in the Middle East.
“Coalition for a peaceful resolution? He said in a statement posted on Twitter, listing eight diplomatic initiatives launched by Iran since 1985, including a peace plan for Yemen in 2015 and a regional non-aggression pact for the proposed Persian Gulf.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday that his country is seeking to form a “coalition to bring peace and a peaceful solution to the Middle East.”
Mohammad Javad Zarif criticized the hypocritical policy of the United States over the Saudi-led war against Yemen.
The first Iranian diplomat has accused the United States of valuing oil more than the people of the Middle East, before traveling to New York for the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations next week.
“Arab blood versus Arab oil / Basic concepts of American politics: four years of indiscriminate bombing of Yemen, 100,000 dead, 20 million malnourished, 2.3 million with cholera, these are the signs that Washington has given the carte blanche to the culprits,” he denounced on his Twitter account.
Referring to Yemeni Resistance’s September 14 operation against Saudi refineries, Zarif reiterated: “It is unacceptable to regard the Yemeni response to the prosecution of Saudi crimes against the people as an act of war.”
