TEHRAN, Iran- Iran fully supports the United Nations' mission, to pursue a political solution to the ongoing crisis in Yemen, Iran's Foreign Ministry announced, on Sunday.
"Since the beginning of the Yemen crisis, the Islamic Republic of Iran has stressed the need for intra-Yemeni talks, free from any foreign intervention," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Bahram Qasemi, said.
"Tehran has consistently expressed its full support for the UN's mission, to find an appropriate political solution as the only way to resolve the crisis," Qasemi was quoted as saying, by the Foreign Ministry's website.
Iran hopes that the Yemeni parties, by adopting an independent and peaceful approach, within the framework of national and intra-Yemeni talks, will prevent foreigners from interfering in the process of the talks, he said.
The Yemen peace talks, sponsored by the United Nations, continued for the fourth consecutive day in Sweden, on Sunday, in an attempt to make a breakthrough in the war-stricken Yemeni crisis.
The Yemeni warring parties have held several rounds of peace talks, since the conflict began, after Iran-backed Shiite Houthis seized power in late 2014.
However, all the talks collapsed and failed to achieve a political agreement, leading to more violence.
