In a meeting with the first deputy of the Iranian foreign ministry Morteza Sarmadi in Baghdad Wednesday evening, he also appreciated Iran’s assistance to the Iraqi nation, IRNA reported.
Sarmadi is in Iraq as part of his tour of regional countries to exchange views with a number of Arab and Islamic countries on the situation in Yemen.
During the meeting, the two sides express concern over the critical situation in the region and the consequences of military operations against Yemen.
They also stressed the necessity of avoiding military operations and violent actions and highlighted the importance of restoring political dialogue among Yemeni groups by resorting to peaceful ways to settle differences.
Sarmadi, in his remarks, congratulated the Iraqi official over liberation of Tikrit by the Iraqi army and tribal forces from the occupation of Takfiri terrorists.
Saudi Arabia embarked on air raids on Yemen early Thursday, one day after the US-backed Yemeni president fled the country.
Riyadh government claimed that it has bombed the positions of the Ansarullah fighters and launched attacks against the Sana'a airport and the Dulaimi airbase.
Saudi indiscriminate bombardment of the residential areas in Sana leveled to the ground residential homes near Sana’a international airport.
At least 60 Yemeni civilians, including women and children, have so far been killed in the Saudi airstrikes.
The Saudi aggression received growing international condemnation as it is pushing the region and the world into chaos as its ISIL mercenaries are on the brink of complete annihilation in Iraq and Syria.
