Albusaidi thanked Iran’s role and efforts in this regard and expressed hope that the ceasefire would lay the necessary groundwork for talks between Yemeni factions and the reopening of the country’s borders.
Amir-Abdollahian also congratulated his Omani counterpart and also Oman’s government and people on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan during the phone call, expressing hope that the ceasefire in Yemen will hold. The Iranian foreign minister further appreciated Oman’s constructive role in this regard.
He said, “Now what is important is the removal of the Saudi-led siege of Yemen in line with the continuation of the truce. Currently, sending relief aid to the people of Yemen is of paramount importance too.”
Amir-Abdollahian then spoke about the Vienna talks. He condemned the US’s move to impose new sanctions on some Iranian individuals and companies and underlined that the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready for a good and lasting deal, but the US side is directly responsible for the prolongation of the talks up until now because it is making excessive demands.
The foreign ministers of Iran and Oman agreed to continue their consultations over issues that are on the agenda of both countries.
