Al-Mashat receives credentials of Iranian ambassador to Sana’a

President of pro-Houthis Supreme Political Council (SPC), the highest ruling authority in Sana’a, Mahdi al-Mashat, on Wednesday received the credentials of Hassan Erlo, ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Sana’a.

During the meeting, they discussed relations between the two countries and ways to strengthen and develop them in the common interests of the two brotherly countries.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs for Yemen’s Houthi-led National Salvation Government (NSG), Hisham Sharaf, has told Iran’s recently appointed ambassador to Sanaa that he intends to strengthen bilateral ties with Tehran in various fields.

Sharaf’s comments were made during a meet last week with Hasan Irlu where he was presented with a copy of the ambassador’s credentials.

The minister expressed his hopes for enhanced relations with Tehran and stated: “Iran’s position calling for an end to the aggression and blockade imposed on Yemen is appreciated by the Yemeni people”

Irlu also reaffirmed Tehran’s commitment in its support for Sana’a, saying Iran would make every effort to achieve peace in the country. Iran recognizes the NSG as the legitimate government of Yemen and received Ibrahim Mohammed Al-Dailami as Sana’a’s ambassador last year.
