TEHRAN – Kingdom of Sweden’s special envoy for Yemen and Libya affairs Peter Semneby met on Sunday with Hossein Jaberi Ansari, a senior assistant to the Iranian foreign minister, to discuss ways to settle the crisis in Yemen and help its people.

During the meeting, which was held in Tehran, the two sides held talks on the latest developments in Yemen, which has been under attack by a Saudi-led military coalition since 2015, IRNA reported.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in March 2015 as an attempt to crush the Houthi movement in the country and restore former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
