The former EU Foreign Affairs Chief Javier Solana said that Iran is the only country in the middle eastern region that is capable of fighting the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL).
According to Al-Alam News Network on Thursday, Solana said that Saudi Arabia has concentrated on Yemen, that’s why Iran is the only country capable to fight ISIL.
Solana added ISIL presence needs a long term program to fight Takfiris.
He reiterated that the Saudi regime is not satisfied with Iran’s nuclear agreement to be reached at the end of June.
Yemen has been under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition since Saudi Arabia launched military strikes against its southern neighbor on March 26 without a UN mandate.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians. Terrorist explosion didn’t stop as well, claiming the lives of innocent and armless people of Yemen.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 2,600 people have so far lost their lives during the conflict in Yemen till June 14. However the death toll released by local authorities puts it much higher at about 4,300.
According to a recent report by Freedom House Foundation, most of the victims of the Saudi-US aggression are civilians, including a large number of women and children.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
