They also stressed the need for efforts to relaunch political peace talks in the Arab country and provide humanitarian aid for the people of Yemen who are facing starvation and are buckling under a blockade.

Meantime, Ould Cheikh Ahmed is scheduled to meet with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The UN envoy also held talks with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari, during which the two sides discussed new initiatives aimed at putting an end to the crisis in the Arab country.

He also called on Iran to support the UN's efforts in this regard.

Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed arrived in Tehran today, to consult with senior officials of the Islamic Republic on the crisis in Yemen.

Yemen has been facing war by a Saudi-led coalition since March 2015. The war, however, has failed to achieve either of the goals, morphing into a protracted conflict and causing a humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
