Zarif: Netanyahu firsters after pushing wars forever

Tehran, April 17, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister in a message said despite the US Congress demand to end war in Yemen, the advocates of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are seeking to continue forever.

'Even the US Congress wants to put an end to @CENTCOM's destabilizing activities in #Yemen,' Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

He added 'But petrofinanced #NetanyahuFirsters and their enabler in the White House will continue—with American lives and against the US interests—to push for forever wars.”

Earlier, Zarif recommended that Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) should add American forces in West Asia, known as the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), to its terrorist groups' list.

In a letter to President Hassan Rouhani, he also called for a retaliatory move by labeling the United States Central Command as a terrorist organization and the US government as a terrorist sponsor.

Zarif described the move as 'another misguided election-eve gift to Netanyahu'.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
