Iranian President Hassan Rouhani cautioned that a military approach will fail to resolve the Yemeni crisis, stressing the importance of restoring stability and security to the war-ravaged country and the entire Middle East through political channels.

Rouhani Calls Qatari Emir: Military Not Solution to Yemen, Some Regional Countries Adopting Adventure

In a telephone conversation with Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani on Monday, Rouhani warned that the recent unprecedented attacks by a Saudi-led military coalition and militia loyal to the former Yemeni government on the western province of Al-Hudaydah would lead to a humanitarian crisis in the impoverished country.

"The continuation of these conflicts has put the poor Yemeni people under intolerable pressure and we are all duty-bound to help this oppressed nation," the Iranian president pointed out.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates launched a major assault on June 13 to take Al-Hudaydah, a densely-populated city and the war-torn country's most vital port.

The invasion of the Yemeni port has already triggered fears of a fresh humanitarian crisis in a country where more than 22 million people are in need of aid, including 8.4 million who are at risk of starvation.

Meanwhile, the Iranian president emphasized that his country's policy is based on interaction and dialogue with regional countries with the purpose of putting an end to the ongoing conflicts, adding that the establishment of stability and security across the region would be beneficial to all regional nations.

"We regard as incorrect the adventurous policies of certain regional countries and believe that the continuation of this process will undoubtedly intensify the existing problems in the region, including in Palestine, Syria and Yemen," Rouhani said.

He also went on to praise the Qatari government and people's resistance against pressures, threats and unjust siege and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the imposed siege on Qatar is unjust, leading to more division and tension among the countries of the region and will do its best to help and cooperate with the Qatari government and people, and contribute to regional stability."

Regarding the continuous "Israeli" brutality against Palestinians, Rouhani confirmed: Today, the people of Palestine, especially the residents of Gaza, are under a lot of pressure and are attacked by the usurper Zionist Regime every day, and Muslims collectively supporting them can help alleviate their pains."

For his part, the Qatari Emir said all regional conflicts can be solved only through dialogue, adding that no country can impose its stance on others.

He emphasized that his country would continue to support the Palestinian people and their resistance against the "Israeli" regime.
